Downtown & Waterfront Area Master Plan

Redevelopment of Our Downtown

The City of Mount Vernon has commenced a comprehensive redevelopment plan for its historic downtown area. The goal of that planning effort is to guide the investment of public and private resources in the downtown area over the next 20 years.

Project Purpose

The purpose of the Mount Vernon Downtown Flood Protection Project is to protect the City's downtown area from flood damage up to and including the 100-year event on the Skagit River. In addition to flood protection, the project's goals include enhancing public access to the shoreline and river and maintaining the existing availability of parking in the downtown area.
