Proposed Jefferson County Home Opportunity Fund Levy

The PLVC is encouraging all property owners in the Port Ludlow Master Planned Resort to attend the Monday, July 24, 6:00 p.m. Jefferson County Commissioners public hearing at the Jefferson County Court room at 1820 Jefferson Street, Port Townsend. This meeting is to discuss a proposed affordable housing levy to be placed on the November 7, ballot. Information about the reasons for levy will be presented and comments from the public will be solicited.

The levy proposed is $0.36 per $1,000.00 of assessed property value and is anticipated to end in seven years. As a property owner in Port Ludlow with an estimated home value of $326,000.00 (Zillow.com, 06/07/17) this would cost the average Port Ludlow homeowner $117.00 annually or $820.00 over the seven years.
