I am new to this area. I think this Riverwalk project looks like a great idea for the citizens of this area and also for visitors. But I "hear" of negative comments or very suspicious comments about this project. Enlighten me. What could be wrong with this project? It would appear the industrial use of this very desiralbe property would be far better suited by commercial and tourism use?? Camas & Washougal are finally emerging from the little mill town image into something much more attractive!

This is a very small piece of river front property that is owned by the public for their access to the river.why do we have to give up our childrens right to this little bit of a great natural wonder. The only people thatthat will be able to go there are the ones with a lot money.Also they are using public money to tell us how great these condos will be.That is what is wrong about this project.
The every day working person will be shut out.

Thanks John, for your comments. I am sure they are most honest and forthright. I can see your points. Is this the only piece of property that is owned by the public? Is this the only way the public, without a lot of money, can gain access to the river? I am thinking perhaps a portion of this unique land could remain for the public to reach the river. I believe in open and honest communication between all parties, be they wealthy or modest of income.

Hi; Yes this is the only property that the public can use legaly for recreation for a long way. We do not need to build on every foot of river frontage to satisfy a very few.
The generations that follow us should be able to enjoy these natural spaces as I have these many years. Money can not replace the open space nor should it.
What is better than to hold your grandchilds hand and marvel at the wonders of our land as any person should be able to do
