Council approves plan!
On Tuesday, February 1 – after more than five months of public process and design work – the Port Angeles City Council adopted the Waterfront Plan portion of the WTIP.
The plan, which includes City Pier, Hollywood Beach, Railroad Avenue and the Valley Creek area, was developed to be implemented in multiple phases as grant and local funds become available. Council directed staff to begin work on the west end of the planning area first, including the boardwalk and the east half of a new waterfront park proposed between Oak Street and the Valley Creek estuary.
Council’s adoption marked a major milestone for the WTIP, led by planning firm Studio Cascade and designed by LMN Architects, HBB Landscape Architecture, and local engineering firm Zenovic Associates. The process engaged hundreds of residents through community workshops, open-house events, questionnaires and interviews, with additional input from the PA Forward advisory panel as well as the Planning Commission and City staff.
