With the signing of the Settlement Agreement on December 19, 2016, between Jefferson County and Port Ludlow Associates (PLA), the mission of the PLVC Ad Hoc Timber Harvest Committee has been fulfilled. There are monitoring activities that need to be conducted by the community, but maintaining a committee for that purpose is not necessary.

Therefore, the PLVC Board of Directors voted at its March 2, 2017, meeting to disband the Ad Hoc Tree Harvesting Committee and to assign all monitoring of harvesting activities to the Community Development standing committee.

It is the Council’s primary liaison with the Jefferson County Community Development Department.  This function is primarily proactive.   Neither the Council nor the Committee has any formal power to force the Developer to adhere to Conditions that have been mandated by the County in approving development projects.  However, the Committee should monitor adherence to these Conditions, bring any lack of compliance to the attention of the County, and insist that the County take action.
  1. The Committee should periodically review problems that may face the Community in the future, especially those that may arise when the Developer completes build-out of the MPR. The Committee should request that the Council either direct it to undertake a detailed analysis and provide recommendations to the Council, or that the Council set up a separate Working Group to consider specific problems.
