Elected Officials to Hold Joint Meeting on Columbia Drive Revitalization
Architect will unveil scale model designs and master plan recommendations

Kennewick, Wash. —

On Tuesday, October 1, 2013 at 6:30 p.m. at the Clover Island Inn, the public and media are invited to learn more about plans for revitalizing the historic Kennewick waterfront between the Cable Bridge and Clover Island Drive, north of Columbia Drive. Architectural scale-model renderings will be unveiled to show the proposed layout of streets, buildings, trails, signage, landscaping, and other amenities for port-owned properties. The public is invited to view and comment. The ―Cable Bridge to Island Causeway‖ project area is located in downtown Kennewick, adjacent to Clover Island and surrounding Duffy’s Pond—offering an extremely unique opportunity for mixed-use development. The vision for the area is to create a destination that includes a wine village featuring urban wineries, tasting rooms, shopping, and entertainment amenities which will draw Quad-City residents and visitors to Kennewick’s historic waterfront. Over the past few years, Port and City staff has been working cooperatively to master plan that area to accommodate boutique wineries, restaurants, retail, public spaces, and waterfront trails. The meeting includes a report on the pattern language process and stakeholder recommendations compiled by Gary Black of Integrated Structures Incorporated; a consultant hired by both the City and Port to assist with joint planning efforts.
