"Washougal Waterfront: A Community Connected" will build upon previous planning efforts and the strengths of the community. One of the ways to achieve this has been to define four guiding principles for the project: thrive, connect, collaborate, and cultivate. The guiding principles were developed based on past community input, existing plans for the area, and the objectives for the Waterfront Vision Plan. These principles will be used as the framework for the development and organization of the Waterfront Vision Plan. The four Guiding Principles are described below.
Washougal’s emerging downtown combined with a local dedication to environmental stewardship creates a strong foundation for a thriving community. Together we will create an economically feasible and sustainable waterfront destination, without compromising the core environmental integrity of the region.
Community partners are committed to building strong relationships based on good faith and genuine involvement. Together we will ensure continued transparency and collaboration between governing agencies, the community, and other regional partners in the future development of the waterfront.
