Proposal For Bathroom Summit In Port Townsend

This coming fall, the bathroom and shower building at the Port located in Port Townsend will undergo installation of access lock using electronic card. When this is done, there is no chance for the homeless people as well as the off-the-grid to be able to access the facility when they need to.The new lock installation is part of the renovation project of the port together with the remodeling of the bathroom and shower facility amounting to $58,191. It is expected that new furniture will be purchased such as an oak top vanity with two bathroom basins. The aim of the renovation and locks is to improve the service of the port to their customers.

According to Steve Tucker, the port commissioner, he wanted to make sure that those who do not have a home and the people who are off-the-grid will still be able to stay clean and answer the call of nature. In a commission meeting that was held last April 26, Tucker said that everybody is discussing about the bathrooms. They recognize the fact that it is not an isolated case as almost everyone is talking about it including the Jefferson Transit, the city, the entire county as well as local businesses that are in one way or another affected by the issue of the bathroom.

Tucker added that they have recommended that they should organize and plan a bathroom summit in the coming days. There are many people who should discuss the issue together in order for them to share the responsibilities that comes with installing bathrooms.

One issue that they are looking at is the sign that is located near the Haines Place Park and Ride wherein it is made up of green and white. The sign reads “RESTROOMS LOCATED AT McDONALD’S AND SAFEWAY” and it is all written in capital letters. They think that the public bathroom is being linked to private businesses which are not viewed as a good thing by the businesses themselves.

There is another public bathroom in the area but it is located inside an already closed out building. They are now in the process of discussing about providing bathrooms for homeless and off-the-grid folks and maybe add something as important as an oak top vanity with two bathroom basins which is ideal for a bathroom used by many at a time.

Canvas Is A Growing Opportunity

Every business usually starts small and if they’re quite successful, it would grow and develop. With patience and perseverance, continuous innovation, evolution, and development in size and scope, it could be a big thing. Newfoundland Canvas started as a one-person print shop and has developed into something more.

The name of the company was what misleads most of the people around, thinking of it as a company making sails. However, owner Adam Kavanagh, it is not unusual and he gets a lot of that particular feedback. The focus for them, however, is the canvas. The canvas for him and his team is a platform and a venue to tell a story that we want to share.

The one-man company has now grown into a small team composed of six employees. These employees use the latest technologies of printing anything, from photographs, banners, small canvas print, greeting cards, and others. Their office space doesn’t have a formal reception area but rather they have a homey ambiance where you can feel the workshop and the hustle of a design studio. Each of the employees has their own special place like from lining up prints for production, face-mounting, stretching a small canvas print, and other tasks for their growing business.

According to Kavanagh, the key to his success is providing quality in an age that is dominated by cheap quantity. Starting out small, he would get excited if there are people walking by his small office but then again it’s online is the source of his customers and clients. One thing that he also has developed as part of his services is being the printer. This allows the artists to focus on their art and the creativity into it.

The original mission for the company was to provide prints that are cool and of high quality but it has grown into something more with all the other new opportunities that are presenting itself to the company. So, from a project on small canvas print to printing large ones to having new technologies being used in their printing, more and more people and companies are making use of their services and the company keeps on growing.
