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. The plan will build upon the 15 years of investment to date and respond to the area’s evolving context and growing community.

The Waterfront District master planning process engaged community members, businesses, partners and other stakeholders in September and October. This input will help identify challenges and opportunities as well as 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.

Based on stakeholder feedback, the Waterfront District Master Plan will prioritize the next 15-20 years of investments to help realize the greater vision for the waterfront area.

The next phase of planning for Kennewick’s Historic Waterfront District is nearly here!

Join Port of Kennewick’s project team for a virtual presentation of two community-guided preliminary development approaches on October 12 at 3 p.m. Or review the concepts and share your comments in our online survey on this webpage anytime from October 10 through October 18.

These concepts are intended to spur a community discussion of the pros and cons of different development approaches and illustrate a range of ideas for how the area could evolve.

Components of each concept can be “mixed and matched,” so we want to hear from you regarding which ideas should move forward into the next project phase.
