Public input sought on riverfront development


Council explores potential for condominiums, restaurants and marina on Columbia River

A second meeting to get public input on the potential for riverfront development in Fairview will be held at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 22, upstairs in the council chambers at Fairview City Hall.

The first meeting in a series of informational gatherings held by the City Council and Planning Commission took place Oct. 8.

The city is interested in hearing from citizens and community members about the potential of rezoning property on the Columbia River for mixed use development. The city also hopes to hear from property owners of the five riverfront properties rezoning would impact.

Rezoning the riverfront would allow developers to pursue building condominium-style housing, restaurants and a marina, the city said, while taking advantage of the natural resources and views on the Columbia River.

The effect of any rezoning would allow existing uses for the riverfront to continue, the city said, but would forbid any expansion of existing industrial activities on the various properties.

Residents are encouraged to attend and express their thoughts on this proposed strategy.
