Community Tides ~ 4/01

On alternate Fridays during the noon hour, KPTZ’s Chris Bricker and co-host Siobhan Canty, President and CEO of Jefferson Community Foundation, meet to discuss new developments, new paradigms and the new normal as we roll into the months ahead. Located near the water’s edge in Port Hadlock, the remodeled 1911 Classen Chemical Company’s Alcohol Plant reopened in 2016 as a hotel, nonprofit housing establishment, restaurant, and event center. Gary Keister is the Managing Member of Inn Properties, and he’s the founder and Executive Director of Bayside Housing and Services, connected to the property there. Gary joins us today to talk about the background and latest news from Bayside Housing and discusses the organization’s goals for transitioning our community’s unsheltered citizens from temporary to permanent supportive housing. He gives us exciting news about the recent purchase of the Hadlock Motel and describes Bayside’s vision for the property’s future there.
