The Port of Camas-Washougal today announced it will be acquiring a parcel of waterfront property along the Columbia River at the former Hambleton Lumber site in Washougal.

“I’m proud that we’ve made this long-awaited goal a reality by first securing a $200,000 planning grant from the Dept. of Ecology to evaluate environmental cleanup issues last year and now through this land purchase agreement,” said David Ripp, executive director of the Port of Camas-Washougal. “I’m pleased we have been able to secure public access to the waterfront.  What’s more, this parcel will enable the port to directly connect our existing land to the east and provide a way for the community to enjoy amenities along the length of the port-owned waterfront.”

The purchase agreement specifies the sale of approximately 13.25 acres from Killian Pacific, at the former Hambleton Lumber Company site, located adjacent to the existing port recreational boating marina. The closing date of the sale is effective Nov. 16, 2012. A portion of the land purchase includes the entire waterfront area to create a public trail along the waterfront.
