Astoria Waterfront Vision Plan

City of Astoria, Oregon

Matt Hastie (under previous employment) managed this effort to craft a future vision for a four-mile long stretch of the Columbia River.  The process addressed strong community opinions regarding the character and scale of future development, visual and physical access to the river and needed public improvements.  Other planning issues included pedestrian, bicycle and auto circulation within the area; economic impacts of development; how to implement the vision. 

Matt worked closely with city staff to conduct an extensive public participation process, including meetings of a steering committee and the public, media outreach, meeting flyers, Web-based surveys, stakeholder interviews and youth activities.  The Riverfront Vision Plan received community planning awards from the Oregon Department of Land Conservation and Development and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
