Historic Waterfront District

Master Plan Update in Progress

Realizing the Greater Vision for the Historic Waterfront

The Waterfront District Master Plan will create a cohesive vision for integrating Clover Island, Columbia Gardens Wine & Artisan Village, The Willows and Cable Greens as one unified amenity district. 

Based on stakeholder feedback, the Waterfront District Master Plan will prioritize the next 15-20 years of investments to help realize the waterfront area’s greater vision. The plan will build upon the 15 years of investment to date and respond to the area’s evolving context and growing community.

Community-Driven Process

The Waterfront District master planning process engaged community members, businesses, partners and other stakeholders in September, October, February and May/June. This input helped identify challenges, opportunities and potential synergies with neighboring plans and projects along Columbia Drive, in downtown Kennewick, across the river on Port of Pasco property and in the broader Tri-Cities community where relevant.

Master Plan Final Draft

The plan showcases the vision for amenities and the development of the Historic Waterfront District following multiple rounds of community feedback. Watch for the final version of the Master Plan following approval by the Port Commission, anticipated this summer.

Thank you to everyone who provided input in September, October, February and the comment period that ended on June 8.
