Commissioners OK Westport subdivision

The Grays Harbor County commissioners granted final plat approval on Monday to a new nine-lot subdvision to go on the Highway 105 spur near Westport.

The Indus Valley development has been in the works since 2009. County planner Curt Crites notes that it started out as an 18-lot development, but changed hands a few times before becoming nine lots.

The eight-acre development has on-site septic and wetlands have already been mitigated, Crites said. Westport will provide the water.

Crites said the development consist of ocean-front lots ranging from 20,000 square feet in size to three-fourths of an acre. There is one existing home at the site dating back to the 1970s, he said.

Public Services Director Kevin Varness says that the approval is one more step in the right direction for the county, which is also seeing more homes built out at Pacific Beach.
