Now Accepting Applications for a Performing Arts and Cultural Center Steering Committee

The Steering Committee shall be responsible for making recommendations to the Port of Camas-Washougal for the physical design, planning, and construction of a Performing Arts & Cultural Center located on the Port’s Waterfront.  The Steering Committee shall develop an operational and strategic plan for the Performing Arts & Cultural Center.

The Port continues to move forward with the waterfront development, and we have heard a request from some community members on possibly siting a performing arts and cultural center at this site.  Because a performing arts and cultural center has been a topic of interest and in conjunction with local community members, we are now accepting applications for a citizen-based Steering Committee. Beginning in April, applicants will be interviewed and selected. The committee will work closely with the Port’s Commission to guide in the planning process.

The application is available here or at the Port Office at 24 South A Street, Washougal, WA  98607.  The deadline to apply is Monday, April 1st at 5 p.m. and may be dropped off or emailed to
