The final open house for the Ancich Park visioning process will be held from 4 to 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday.
The Gig Harbor Parks Commission will present its priorities for the land during the open house — the second of two scheduled public meetings. Among them will be an active commercial netshed, commercial fleet moorage, human-powered craft storage, historic preservation of the netshed and recognition of the working waterfront’s history.
The city purchased the land for the park on Harborview Drive in August 2012. The open house will be held at the Gig Harbor Civic Center, 3510 Grandview St.
There will be a time for public comment during the Parks Commission’s regular meeting, which will follow the open house.
The recommendations for use were put together by a stakeholders group that was formed in February. The group consists of 20 citizens.
The namesake of the park, Croatian immigrants Peter and Katie Ancich, purchased the property and built the netshed in the 1920s. The site is on the Gig Harbor Register of Historic Places. It is one of a group of five historic netsheds on the working waterfront.
