The new City Chairs/Tables are a project of the Port Townsend Main Street Design Committee. Funded in part by the Port Townsend Main Street Program, Beverly Malagon, downtown property owner and member of the Port Townsend Main Street Design Committee, and Harry Doyle, owner of The Tin Brick. The Port Townsend Main Street Design Committee is hopeful that more property/business owners will partner with Main Street to add more street furniture in the historic districts, to increase the pedestrian-friendliness of Port Townsend.
