PORT ANGELES — The Jamestown S’Klallam tribe remains interested in pursuing the redevelopment of Rayonier’s former mill site despite deadlocked negotiations between the company and Harbor-Works.

Tribal Chairman Ron Allen said the Blyn-based tribe, which has developed 7 Cedars Casino and the Cedars at the Dungeness Golf Course, is still hopeful that it will be the lead agency for redevelopment of the fallow property — considered the largest undeveloped land on the North Olympic Peninsula — and become the eventual owner of most, if not all, of the 75-acre site.

In fact, he said, the tribe is preparing to release a conceptual drawing of a Native American cultural center that it wants to build on the eastern edge of the waterfront property.
