Jefferson County Negotiates Settlement Agreement with Port Ludlow Associates Regarding PLA Timber Practices Inside the Master Planned Resort
Jefferson County has negotiated a Settlement Agreement with Port Ludlow Associates (PLA), resolving a dispute over PLA’s timber harvests in 2015, and providing clarity for future timber harvests by PLA within the Port Ludlow Master Planned Resort for the duration of its existing development agreement with the County.  The Jefferson County Board of Commissioners approved the Settlement Agreement during their regular meeting on Monday, December 19. 


The timber dispute arose out of differing interpretations of how the Development Agreement and state law applied to two timber harvests in early 2015 by PLA within the Master Planned Resort.
