Media Advisory: Fourth Plain Community Commons Grand Opening Celebration Sept. 23 (Photo) - 09/21/23

Vancouver, Wash. – The City of Vancouver, Vancouver Housing Authority (VHA) and Fourth Plain Forward invite media and members of the community to a grand opening celebration from 1 to 6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 23, for Fourth Plain Community Commons, a community-focused development located at 2200 Norris Road, Vancouver, WA 98661.

Fourth Plain Community Commons is a first-of-its-kind, mixed-use partnership project between the City and Vancouver Housing Authority that adds 106 affordable housing units, 10,000 square feet of ground floor community space and a public plaza to one of Vancouver’s most diverse corridors. 

The community space includes a commissary kitchen that hosts a food-based incubator program for emerging food-based businesses, a shared office space to co-locate services to make it easier for residents and businesses to access resources and an outdoor public plaza with infrastructure to support a Vancouver Farmers Market satellite.

Vancouver Housing Authority owns and operates the apartments located on the upper floors. The City of Vancouver developed the ground floor commercial space and is partnering with Fourth Plain Forward to operate it.

Speakers scheduled to be at the event include U.S. Rep. Marie Gluesenkamp-Perez, Sen. Annette Cleveland, Vancouver Mayor Anne McEnerny-Ogle, mural artist Christian Tellez and more.

The program also includes performers from Vancouver Ballet Folklórico and Vietnamese Lion Dance, outdoor roving acts, family-friendly entertainment and food and drinks.
