THE FACTS On June 19, 1862, President Abraham Lincoln signed an executive order setting aside much of present-day Port Angeles as a government reserve. This land, stretching east from the base of Ediz Hook to Ennis Creek and one mile inland from the coast, was to be used for lighthouse, military and government purposes. On March 3, 1863, an act of Congress set aside a portion of that reserve as a townsite to be divided into homesites and sold to raise money to offset the debt of the Civil War, thus creating the Second National City. THE FICTION It has been said that if the South conquered Washington, D.C., in the Civil War, the government would be moved to Port Angeles. The transcontinental railroad was not completed until 1869, and it went to California, not Washington Territory. It was not until 1883 that the Northern Pacific Railway connected the Washington Territory to the East. During the Civil War, Port Angeles, located in the far northwestern corner of the country, could not have been an alternative capital city. Nevertheless, Port Angeles was designated as the Second National City by an act of Congress. When kept in the proper perspective, this designation can and should be used with pride. There will never be another Second National City. â€” Historical information provided by Kathy Monds, executive director of the Clallam County Historical Society.

Keep your tax dollars at work in Port Angeles Main Street Program allows business owners to direct where their tax money will be spent written by BARB FREDERICK

We donâ€™t often get the opportunity to direct where our tax dollars are spent. But if you own a business that pays Washington State Business & Occupation Tax â€” you can. When you pay B&O or Public Utility Tax (PUT) you can also make a contribution to the Port Angeles Downtown Association and deduct 75 percent of the contribution on your B&O taxes the following year. The Port Angeles Downtown Association is a member of the Washington State Main Street Program and nationally recognized as one of only 13 top-tier downtown revitalization associations in the state. Because of that, PADA is able to receive funds through the Washington State Main Street Tax Credit Incentive Program. Hereâ€™s a simple example of how the Main Street tax incentive works: If your business contributes $10,000 to our local PADA Main Street program this year, you will receive a $7,500 B&O tax credit to be used next year. You can contribute any part up to the full amount of your annual B&O tax obligation with a single
payment or incremental payments throughout the calendar year. By redirecting your B&O taxes to the PADA Main Street Program, you invest directly in the health and vitality of our downtown. Your tax dollars are put to work here in your own front yard adding to the quality of life for your employees and for other businesses to locate here as well. PADA is the only organization in Clallam County that can utilize the Main Street Tax Credit Incentive Program. We encourage you to consider investing a portion of your B&O taxes in your downtown.
How the money is used
Through Main Street tax incentive contributions, PADA will be able to continue to offer important services such as: â€˘ Community events highlighting the uniqueness and vibrancy of our downtown. â€˘ Work to protect the historic nature of downtown Port Angeles. â€˘ Coordinate the various ongoing projects including Art On The Town, Downtown Dollars, Streetscape Improvements, Downtown Parking and many more. B&O tax funds will be used this year, among other projects, to enhance lighting at the Conrad Dyar Memorial Fountain at First & Laurel Streets, and could be used in the future to purchase Fri, Sept 14, 6:30 pm to 8 pm. new street banners and Experience the rich history and activities of our deep-water harbor and share the fun of Christmas decorations period-costumed visitors!
