On Monday fifteen city councilors, commissioners, and board members participated in a tour of past, present, and future development projects.  

The tour was designed to help our City Council and Advisory Boards to better connect with one another and the shared community priorities they are working on. This is the third time we have offered this tour and it is always well attended and appreciated by councilors and board members.

Below find a list of the locations visited, as well as a short summary of the activity happening there. 

Development Tour Stops

  1. Greely Acres Park (8818 N 1st Circle): Park and playground opened earlier this year. Work in the area is continuing with the Watershed Alliance to remove invasive plants and plant new trees.
  2. Clark College at Boschma Farms (east end of Pioneer Street): The college is building an Advanced Manufacturing Center and construction is expected to wrap up at the end of next year. Adjacent to the project, the city is working on the Pioneer Street Extension Project which consists of extending Pioneer approximately 400 feet, constructing a new roundabout, and building a new road south to S 5th Avenue.
  3. Northwest corner of the Junction: Several projects in this area are underway including Union Ridge Town Center which will include Costco and other businesses, the Ridgefield YMCA, and the Pioneer Widening and 50th Avenue Project. 
  4. Royle Road: Improvements along the Royle Road corridor are ongoing. The first phase, Central, was complete this summer. The second phase, North will begin construction this Fall 2023 and the third phase, South, will undergo design and permitting in 2024.
  5. Ridgefield Outdoor Recreation Complex (RORC): Fields 4 and 5 will receive new lighting.
  6. Downtown: Multiple projects in downtown contributing to revitalization include Skate Park Feasibility Study, the Park Laundry Cleanup Site, the old police station building, and the Carts by the Park food carts.
