    The Big Spring Spruce Up is a project of ElevatePA

    • For the love of Port Angeles:  Elevate PA!
    • There has never been a better time to harness momentum and together embrace a new vision for our downtown.
    • This is about our entire community, by and for all of us, and a chance to turn our pride into actions and results.
    • Become part of the opportunity to create a more special place, loved by locals, admired by visitors, and inspiring to all.
    ElevatePA 2026 is an initiative funded by the City of Port Angeles and coordinated by the Port Angeles Chamber of Commerce. The objective is the create a cohesive vision for the future of what is now the central business district, and develop a strategic plan to realize that vision by 2026.  The strategic plan will capitalize on the once-in-a-generation private investments currently underway in the downtown business district, and will be supported and implemented by public, private and non-profit stakeholders.
    The annual Big Spring Spruce Up is just the first of many positive outcomes we hope to build as a result of ElevatePA 2026.
