This is a deeply flawed agreement that will hurt South Jefferson County and forever alter our rural way of life. The Brinnon Group is appealing the agreement. There is a brief period to file the appeal. The time for legal action is now.
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.
