The Wahkiakum County Eagle - Established as The Skamokawa Eagle in 1891

Waterfront park plans nearing completion


Stephanie Stroud of the National Park Service met with Mayor Dale Jacobsen and several other officials and community members last Thursday to review the current draft of the concept plan for the proposed waterfront park in Cathlamet.

The concept plan will be used to promote the project as the group seeks grants to fund it. The concept plan will have maps and pictures, a description of the project, and information about the community, including demographics and local history.

“It will be this information but organized a little bit differently and with some actual numbers that we will be able to use when we request grant funds,” Stroud said. “We’ve been working on this for almost a year and a half now, this is a lot of work we put into this.”

They brainstormed ideas for potential grantors. One attendee suggested that large signs describing the project be created and posted somewhere in town

They talked about establishing a Friends of the Cathlamet Waterfront Park and the possibility of setting up a 501(c)(3).

Stroud agreed to attend Bald Eagle Days to promote the project, and answer questions. The park may also be promoted at the fair, the Wooden Boat Show, and other events this summer.

Stroud expects the concept plan to be completed by August.
