In 2003, the port and city appointed the citizen-led Waterfront Futures Group to create a vision for the changing waterfront. During the 18-month project, the community spoke loudly in favor of a new waterfront, calling for the creation of a mixed-use neighborhood that combines commercial, institutional, educational, retail service, and residential uses enveloped in increased quality access to the aquatic environment. In January 2005, the port acquired all 137-acres of Georgia Pacific’s waterfront property to help rebuild the waterfront economy and make the community vision a reality.
