We are excited to announce that we have awarded a contract to Beckwith Consulting Group out of LaConnor, WA to conduct a Market Study for Clinton. This Market Study is funded by Island County Rural Economic Development Funds. The goal of this market study is to complete an assessment of Clinton’s economic market and climate, to project Clinton’s future business development potential, to analyze the market sectors and shares, and to describe the business types most appropriate for Clinton. This timing of this project is particularly advantageous since the Port is participating in a parking study in Mukilteo, which we hope will develop solutions for our commuters and visitors alike connecting to and through Clinton. In addition, the Washington State Department of Transportation allocated funding to improve the Clinton Ferry Terminal. Here are two recent articles from the South Whidbey Record on the topics:

South Whidbey Harbor Docks: The floating docks at South Whidbey Harbor are open to the public from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. The pier is always open for spectacular views of Saratoga Passage.
