Wrangell Waterfront Master Plan
|Client:||City of Wrangell|
|Components:||Master Planning, Public Outreach|
Wrangell has long been known as a working waterfront community with its marine service facility, outstanding docks and harbors, and large fishing fleet. The community understands the importance of its waterfront and its ability to generate economic opportunities. Corvus Design provided public involvement and master planning and led a team of marine engineers, architects, and economists to create a waterfront master plan that allows expansion of existing facilities and provides new opportunities. Essential to the plan was to ensure the waterfront remained authentic to its heritage and culture. Through a series of multi-day workshop sessions in the community, the master planning team worked with residents and businesses to develop their waterfront master plan. The plan expands the marine services center, creates a waterfront Heritage walk, creates access to the water and open space, adds a new pier that allows the berthing of yachts and fishing boats. The pier includes a net shed to allow visitors to see fishermen repair nets and creates a new focal point on the waterfront for special events.
