Timeline

The Soldotna Riverfront Redevelopment Project kicked off in October 2022.  The City of Soldotna contracted with First Forty Feet, an urban design, community planning, and place strategy firm from Portland, OR to oversee the project.  First Forty Feet will offer multiple opportunities for public engagement throughout the planning process, and will present a Master Plan for riverfront redevelopment by November 2023.
