Waterfront Master Plan

UPDATE 8/18/2021:

The Waterfront Master Plan is in its beginning stages. A consultant team of planners, architects, economists, and development strategists started work in August. A Project Advisory Committee, comprised of City and Port staff, stakeholders, and members of the public, will oversee the team’s work. Over the next few months, the public will have several opportunities to follow the progress and provide input on the future of Astoria’s waterfront, prior to presentation of the final Master Plan to the Astoria Development Commission and Port of Astoria Commission for approval.

UPDATE 6/22/2021:

The City of Astoria unanimously approved the Urban Renewal Agency Contract for Personal Services with Walker Macy at the commission meeting Monday night. Walker Macy, a Landscape Architecture and Urban Planning firm out of Portland, was selected after a lengthy Request for Qualifications (RFQ) process, and has demonstrated a superior understanding of the project.

Background

The Port of Astoria Waterfront Master Plan is a joint effort by the Port and the City of Astoria to develop a swath of underutilized waterfront on Port property, between Pier 1 and the Astoria-Megler Bridge (see attached map). The goals of the Waterfront Master Plan include:

  • Creation of a Vision for the Port's Industrial Waterfront that promotes vibrant mixed use development, leveraging strategic public investments and policy initiatives that set the stage for substantial new private development.
  • A Vision that is long term in focus, but which is capable of adapting to changing economic circumstances over time.
  • A Vision that contributes to the economic prosperity of Astoria.
  • A Master Plan that contributes to the financial stability of the Port and the City.
  • A Master Plan that reinforces Astoria's historic role as the economic hub of the North Coast. 

The Master Plan is anticipated to be completed by late 2021.
