Kalama council proceeds with plan to annex 250 acres near port
The proposed annexation area is east of Interstate 5 Exit 32 to the north of the Kalama River in the area of Old Highway 99 and Kress Lake.
Last week, Kalama City Council members approved a plan to annex 250 acres of Port of Kalama property and several adjoining parcels into the city. The next step is to get signatures from the property owners.
Including the land within the city would be mutually beneficial for the port and the city, according to port and city officials. … Kalama’s Planning Commission will review zoning changes to the area. Smee and Poulson said there could be mixed zoning that allows for light industrial, commercial and restaurant businesses. It could be six months to a year before the annexation process is complete, and another decade or two before the property is fully developed.
