2023 Area Study

The City of Newport completed a study focusing on the 7th Avenue and Hastings Avenue corridors in 2023.  The goals of the study were to better understand the needs of the community and the market demand. The study included community feedback, market analysis, and short and long-term development opportunities. The Steering Committee worked with HKGi and LOCi Consulting to provide recommendations to the City Council and Planning Commission on viable options to continue the growth of Newport.
