The Astoria Planning Commission will hold a public hearing on Tuesday, August 6, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall, Council Chambers, 1095 Duane Street, Astoria, to review proposed Amendment A19-05 – to amend the Astoria Comprehensive Plan to adopt the Uniontown Reborn Master Plan.
In May 2018, the City of Astoria launched “Uniontown Reborn, Creating a Great Pacific Northwest Gateway to Astoria”, a community planning process funded through the State of Oregon’s Transportation and Growth Management (“TGM”) Program.
Uniontown serves as a gateway to Astoria and as an important center for industrial and commercial activity. The Astoria Megler Bridge brings people across the Columbia River from Washington, and the New Young’s Bay Bridge brings people from the coast. While the Uniontown neighborhood has a central location and historic character, it has not experienced the same level of investment as downtown Astoria. This is due in part to the lack of a unifying vision for the neighborhood to guide public investments and support private redevelopment activity. As future growth and development will impact traffic, neighborhoods and businesses in Astoria, now is the time to focus on strategies and priorities for the future of this unique, historic working waterfront community.
The purpose of Uniontown Reborn is to better integrate transportation and land use planning and develop new ways to support economic development along with safety and access enhancements to improve conditions for pedestrians, bicyclists, transit users, and motorists. The project will lay the groundwork for design and construction of streetscape and lane reconfigurations improvements on West Marine Drive/U.S. 101, along with potential land use and development code refinements to foster community-supported future development.
