Hard work and great planning continues to pay off for GreenWorks’ contribution to the Astoria Waterfront Visioning Plan. The project was recently honored with the Excellence in Local Government Planning: City of Astoria award for efforts at urban and waterfront revitalization, in particular the Riverfront Vision Plan by the Oregon Department of Land Conservation and Development’s Oregon Coastal Management Program.
GreenWorks assisted with this comprehensive waterfront visioning plan concentrating on accessibility, circulation, open space, parks, trails, and sustainable solutions. The work focused on capturing the character of Astoria identifying, which characteristics are unique and well loved within the community and providing imagery, plans, and strategies to guide future community development. This award complements the Astoria Riverfront’s national honors received for educating the community about the value of cultural and natural resources from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration received earlier this year.
