Community Meetings: Columbia Rivershore Reconveyance

Join us for two upcoming Community Meetings regarding the Columbia Rivershore Reconveyance.

TRIDEC is hosting, in partnership with the Cities of Pasco and Richland, two informational meetings to discuss the proposed Columbia River Shoreline Reconveyance.

TRIDEC partnered with the City of Kennewick to host the first Community Meeting on Thursday, August 2.

As background, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers currently owns most of the Columbia River shoreline throughout the Tri-Cities, including the parks (which are operated by the cities under long-term leases), levees, and other infrastructure. The proposed reconveyance would transfer ownership of the land back to the cities through federal legislation.

The intention of these meetings is to provide attendees with an overview of what is being considered, and to seek out public comment.

We hope that you will join us to learn more about the proposal, and to show your support!

    I am very concerned about this proposed ” Reconveyance “: ! … My question Is: … Does this proposed “Reconveyance”, take into account, the Corps of Engineers managed shoreline on the Snake river in western Walla Walla county ?

    Sincerely,
    Ron Vocht,… and residents of Burbank Heights, Washington

      Hi Ron,
      It does not currently take that portion of the shoreline into account. What is your opinion on whether or not that it should?
