The Port of Camas-Washougal Commissioners plan to spend $6.07 million in reserves, to purchase 13.25 acres in shoreline property at the former Hambleton Lumber Company site.
During their Nov. 6 meeting, the commissioners unanimously authorized Port Executive Director David Ripp to execute a purchase and sale agreement with Killian Pacific, LLC.
A portion of the land purchase at 335 S. "A" St., Washougal, includes the waterfront area to create a public trail.
"This parcel will enable the port to directly connect our existing land to the east and provide a way for the community to enjoy amenities along the length of the port-owned waterfront," Ripp said.
