Draft Willamette Falls Riverwalk Master Plan

In early 2015, the Willamette Falls Legacy Project Partners (Oregon City, Clackamas County, Metro and the State of Oregon) initiated a public master planning process for the Willamette Falls riverwalk. The final master plan aims to provide a long-term vision that will guide future development and public use of the riverwalk.

Throughout the master planning process, there were multiple opportunities for the public to participate and provide feedback. We held five large-scale community events and an online community check-in, as well as dozens of tours, presentations and community conversations.

The draft master plan was presented at a Metro Council work session on Nov. 21 and is available for public review and commenting until Dec. 13. Project staff will be presenting the draft master plan at an Oregon City City Commission work session on Dec. 12. We anticipate Metro Council adoption of the master plan in January 2018, with Oregon City adoption following soon after. Adoption of the master plan memorializes the master planning process and is an important next step to making the community’s vision a reality.
