Port of South Whidbey eyes additional marina parking

In their ongoing effort to expand the marina in Langley, Port of South Whidbey commissioners took another small step toward realizing that vision recently when they agreed to consider spending $170,000 on a small parking lot on Wharf Street. At its regular meeting this month, the board voted unanimously after an executive session to approve a purchase and sales agreement with Wharf Street Holding Company, LLC. The deal is not yet finalized and is contingent on the results of additional investigation, but both parties hope to close by Aug. 15.
