Port of Kennewick seeks input on development projects
KENNEWICK, Wash.-- The Port of Kennewick is in the planning stages of the next phase of improvements to the Historic Waterfront District in the area of Clover Island… down toward the Cable Bridge… and they want you to chime in.
Tana Bader Inglima with the Port of Kennewick says they're looking toward the next 15 years of development planning.
"We had a lot of public feedback on the first phase. We hope the folks who weighed in the first time are going to come back and weigh in, and other people who didn't get a chance to weigh in then can weigh in now," Bader Inglima said.
The Port has set up a website specifically for the input process, KennewickHistoricWaterfront.org.
After a live presentation the afternoon of Monday, October 12, 2020, residents will have the chance to provide feedback and ideas through Sunday, October 18th.
"This is basically saying 'we've done a bunch of stuff the community wanted before, now we need to figure out what the community wants moving forward over the next 15 to 20 years," Bader Inglima said. "So this is a chance for people to say I want playgrounds or waterfront activities or residential or green space or I want trails."
Consultants for the Port have provided a range of ideas for how the area could evolve, and Port officials hope to get a clear understanding of what the community wants to see developed in that historic area.
