Discovery Subarea Plan

Planning area

The Discovery area is located in an urbanized area of unincorporated Clark County between Vancouver and Ridgefield. The planning area includes approximately 2,071 acres and extends from NE 164th Street (south), NE 29th Avenue (east), NE 209th Street (north) and NW 11th Avenue (west).

The area has a mix of housing, businesses, and undeveloped property, but it is regionally known for the Clark County Fairgrounds and Expo Center Complex and the Amphitheater.

The Three Creeks Special Planning Area was established by the Board of Clark County Commissioners with the adoption of the September 25, 2007 Comprehensive Plan. The commissioners appointed an advisory council to assist with subarea transportation plans, land use plans and related matters in the unincorporated urban areas around Hazel Dell, Felida, Lake Shore, Salmon Creek and the fairgrounds. This special planning area will give residents a larger and more direct voice in planning for their own future.

In the council’s first year, they adopted a vision and mission (PDF) for the planning area and identified 8 distinctive subareas for future study. The Discovery/Fairgrounds Subarea is the second area for review.
