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.
