Vancouver USA Seeks Public Input

By Karen Robes Meeks

The Port of Vancouver USA is asking the public to weigh in on its Terminal 1 waterfront development and planned public marketplace, as it plans to erect a dock structure over the Columbia River.

The port, which recently started efforts to design and fund the marketplace, has put out a 22-question survey asking the public what they want to see at Terminal 1 and the marketplace.

The port, which is running the survey through April 20, is also teaming up with the Terminal 1 Advisory Committee, a group of local stakeholders advising staff, and consultants Graham Baba Architects and Greenworks on the project.

Meanwhile, the port will host open houses in the spring and summer to talk about possible alternatives, with plans to reveal a preferred choice in the fall. The first open house is schedule for May 22 from 4 to 7 p.m. at Warehouse 23 Event Space at Terminal 1.
