AIA Architects Recommend Changes to Port Angeles

The Peninsula Daily News reported that the “city of Port Angeles is working its way through the 85 recommendations made by the American Institute of Architects to determine which ones are feasible to undertake now and which should be put into long-term plans”.

The article goes on to note that there are some dramatic suggestions from the AIA that include - to "decouple" First and Front streets and make them both two-lane roads which will reconfigure how bicycles and pedestrians navigate the city.

You can read all the AIA Architect's recommendations in their report here , or visit the city's Web site at http://tinyurl.com/ybzpbsm.

This report, based on a three-day visit from a six-member AIA design team in March, was funded by a $15,000 grant and $5,000 from the city. The city has selected 30 of the recommendations as feasible to do in the near future.

  1. It's nice to see the AIA having an impact in our local communities. Port Angeles seems to be growing so much in the last few years. This type of planning is exactly what is needed. AIA, great way to give back to the community .
