Downtown Waterfront Master Plan Review and Update

Print this page

Project Overview

The Downtown Waterfront Master Plan (DWMP) was adopted on June 4, 2015. Pursuant to City Code Section 16.08.060, “The Downtown Waterfront Master Plan shall be reviewed and updated not less than every seven (7) years after the adoption date.” The DWMP is a conceptual planning document reflecting the community’s vision for the future of the city’s Downtown Waterfront. The DWMP has a framework that includes six (6) Character Districts that subdivide the plan area into zones of specific use and focus. These Character Districts are located from Coffee Pot Park on the north end to Lassing Park on the south end.

The Master Plan framework is based on five (5) Dimensions of the Waterfront, which consist of guiding values and experiences to be available and applied to the public waterfront. Each of the Dimensions of the Waterfront and the Character Districts have a set of comprehensive waterfront needs that are considered Key Action Items. The City is providing an assessment of the Key Action Items, or improvements, that have been completed over the past seven years.
