Washougal Wash. – September 13, 2019 – The Port of Camas-Washougal will present 3 preliminary waterfront concepts for the community to review and give input at the September 16, 2019 board meeting.

After countless hours of surveying the community and receiving over 650 responses back from the on-line survey, the Port, along with RKm Development and YBA Architects has developed 3 preliminary concepts for the Waterfront at Parker’s Landing.  Our vision for the Waterfront at Parker’s Landing includes a harmonizing, multi-use area for dining, shopping, errands, family fun, and inter-generational entertainment, all next-door to beautifully designed residences with amazing waterfront views of the river and scenic gorge.

Next steps include continued discussion and modification of the concepts, culminating into one final Waterfront Phase 1 Master Plan design.  Upcoming meetings to facilitate this process include:

  • Board Meeting: Monday, September 16
    • 3 Conceptuals without PBS engineering and environmental data
  • Workshop:  Tuesday, October 15
    • 3 Conceptuals with PBS engineering and environmental data
  • Board Meeting: Monday, October 21
    • Continued Discussion on 3 Conceptuals

    • Approve Preliminary Conceptual
  • Board Meeting: Monday, December 2
    • Final Master Plan without PBS engineering and environmental data
  • Board Meeting: Monday, December 16
    • Approve Final Master Plan

The community’s input is highly valued and desired in order to create a multi-faceted public epicenter, with design and programmatic elements that will not only boost the local economic engine, but also amplify the unique amenities of the site to attract visitors, customers and users from around the region.

Join us at any or all of the upcoming meetings to build a destination for generations to come.  Preliminary drafts of the 3 options and related information will be available Tuesday, September 17, 2019 on our website at Portcw.com.
