Lewiston's Waterfront Vision
As part of the City Council's fiscal year 2008 and fiscal year 2009 budget process, a Strategic Planning Workshop was conducted on April 16, 2008.  The City's 2028 vision was created and ten year benchmarks were established including items entitled "Downtown and Waterfront Redevelopment".  However, as follow-up meetings and discussions took place and initial planning and scoping began, the idea of planning for the entire waterfront for a more far-reaching benefit came into being.

The following quote was taken from a community response survey: " Not many cities have the opportunity to develop a waterfront.  My vision is to see a diverse people-friendly recreational, residential community with entertainment amenities that overlook the downtown riverfront".
