A proposed deal between the Port of South Whidbey and Goosefoot to overhaul a commercial kitchen is still in the works.

The plan was discussed again at special meeting Wednesday. The details are still being hammered out, but the the general plan is for the port district to renovate the existing kitchen in the Coffman Building and Goosefoot, a non-profit organization, to purchase new equipment and run the facility as a rentable commercial kitchen.

Port Commissioner Ed Halloran, who is also president of the board, said more work is required but that the proposal will likely move forward at some point.

“They want something done, we want something done, it will serve the community very well,” he said.

A construction company recently estimated the renovation of the kitchen at $460,000. Angi Mozer, executive director of the port, largely dismissed the estimate. She said it was based on similar projects, not an actual evaluation of the space, and doesn’t believe it accurately reflects the real cost.
