Hayden Island Livability Project
Organization using grassroots effort to work on development of freeway and to make community liveable.
The Hayden Island Liveability Project describes its focus as: Protecting, investing, and renewing the liveability of Hayden Island.
WHO WE ARE:
The Hayden Island Livability Project is a grassroots organization formed by the community of Hayden Island out of desire to have a voice in the activities happening or proposed on the Island that affect the livability of us all. The organization is using grassroots effort to work on development of the I-5 bridge/Freeway Interchanges and to maintain our island community livability.
The Hayden Island Livability Project was formed as a reaction to the release of the Refinement Package to the Columbia River Crossing Project (CRC). This 5-mile construction project on the I-5 between Oregon and Washington was to redo the freeway and build a new bridge across the Columbia also putting a 22-lane interchange on Hayden Island, demolishing approximately 37 businesses and our only grocery store and pharmacy. From the Save Our Safeway Campaign to the No on 22 Lanes Campaign we have had an impact on the proposed project and are continuing to be involved in the discussions that will shape our community for years to come.
