Port of C-W Commission to discuss waterfront property in special meeting Friday

Decisions may be made after executive session

The Port of Camas-Washougal Commission will discuss waterfront property disposition during a special meeting at 3:30 p.m., Friday, June 16.
The open public meeting will recess into an executive session for commissioners to discuss waterfront property to trade, sell or lease. The executive session will be closed to the public.
The open session will resume, and decisions could be made.
The port owns 27 acres, and Parker’s Landing LLC owns 13 acres of the former Hambleton Lumber Company property at 335 S. “A” St., Washougal. Parker’s Landing LLC is represented by Killian Pacific President Lance Killian.

Killian Pacific is interested in purchasing some of the port-owned land on the east end of the waterfront. That area is expected to include rental residential development. The port is not chartered to be involved in residential development that does not have commercial or retail businesses tied to it.

Multi-family and single-family residential are among the development options mentioned by David Hansen, a Seattle architect hired by the port to create a master plan for the land.

Killian has said residential development will provide “built in customers” for the commercial and retail businesses that are expected to locate along the waterfront. The developments are expected to be built in phases and blocks.
