MAKERS’ plan positions East Downtown Olympia to evolve into a unique, vibrant district and critical link between the downtown core, the Port’s East Bay development, and the neighborhoods to the east. Key components included:

  • Working with property owners, business owners, the Port, and citizens to create a cohesive vision for the area.
  • Analyzing the feasibility of a variety of development scenarios to provide recommendations with a foundation in economic and financial reality.

To achieve this vision, the plan calls for an integrated strategy of short- and long- term actions. The most significant of these includes upgrading the district’s key streets, tweaking current design standards, working toward development of a parking facility, and building partnerships with local business and property owners.
