Brinnon Resort Agreement Appealed to Superior Court. Appeal Seeks to Invalidate Urban Scale Resort Proposal on Hood Canal. “This appeal should come as no surprise to the county. We’ve submitted countless expert opinions and analysis attempting to rectify the many flaws in this agreement.”
The Statesman Group, Canadian developers who want to build a 'urban scale' resort on Hood Canal, see this deal as a 'public-private' partnership. Statesman's vision: Jefferson County "grants" the developer $2 million and the state grants $9.25 million and then issues $26.5 million in tax exempt bonds so Statesman can get their resort rolling.
