After countless hours of surveying the community and receiving over 650 responses back from the on-line survey, the port, along with RKm Development and YBA Architects has developed three preliminary concepts for the Waterfront at Parker’s Landing.  The vision for the Waterfront at Parker’s Landing includes a multi-use area for dining, shopping, errands, family fun, and inter-generational entertainment, all next-door to beautifully designed residences with waterfront views of the river and scenic gorge. 

Next steps include continued discussion and modification of the concepts, culminating into one final Waterfront Phase 1 Master Plan design.  Upcoming meetings to facilitate this process include:

  • Board Meeting: Mon., Sept. 16
    • 3 Conceptuals without PBS engineering and environmental data
  • Workshop:  Tue., Oct. 15
    • 3 Conceptuals with PBS engineering and environmental data
  • Board Meeting: Mon., Oct. 21
    • Continued Discussion on 3 Conceptuals
  • Board Meeting: Mon., Nov. 4
    • Approve Preliminary Conceptual
  • Board Meeting: Mon., Dec. 2
    • Final Master Plan without PBS engineering and environmental data
  • Board Meeting: Mon., Dec. 16
    • Approve Final Master Plan 

The community’s input is highly valued and desired in order to create a multi-faceted public epicenter, with design and programmatic elements that will not only boost the local economic engine, but also amplify the unique amenities of the site to attract visitors, customers and users from around the region.

Port officials invite area residents to attend any or all of the upcoming meetings to build a destination for generations to come.  Preliminary drafts of the three options and related information will be available Tue., Sept. 17, on the website at Portcw.com.
