Crescent Bar Recreation Plan
Recreation improvement construction is underway
The long-awaited approval to begin recreation development of the Crescent Bar Recreation Area was issued by FERC on Sept. 21. This approval kicks off several phases of development, which started fall of 2016 with renovation of the off-island marina area, and development of the off-island day-use park and trail by Spokane-based West Co.
In October 2016, the Board of Commissioners approved Hurst Construction’s bid for the second phase of development, which includes development of a 55-site campground, multi-purpose day-use park, and pedestrian trail on Crescent Bar Island. It also includes removal of the existing commercial building and fire station.
Both of the first two phases are scheduled for completion by Memorial Day 2017.
Additional construction phases for the on-island work will begin sometime in 2017 and include the marina area (pending FERC approval), a new commercial building, and renovation of the wastewater and water systems.
