Six Portland State University graduate students are partnering with the city of Washougal and the Port of Camas-Washougal to create a plan for the waterfront.
Project Manager Shannon Jamison and Engagement Coordinator Julia Metz spoke during the March 4 port commission meeting.
The students, in the master of urban and regional planning program, are expected to have the waterfront vision plan completed by June 9. Tentatively, that will include an April 5 kickoff and a May 3 recognition event.
“This is their thesis project for their graduate degree,” said Port Finance Director Kim Noah.
The goal of the project is “to develop a community vision for the waterfront that connects and complements the downtown, and supports the creation of a local and regional identity for the City of Washougal.”
