Program: Community Feedback and Feasibility Studies
Rich Deline, representative for the Corps Foundation, has been involved in the renovation project at the Fish Ladder from the ground up. He will discuss the history of the Locks and the complexities of working with the Corps of Engineers, the Corps Foundation, Friends of the Ballard Locks, and others. He’ll talk about why non-government funding was needed for the renovation, about the community impact and feasibility studies they conducted to help guide the renovation, and about how they used those studies to support their capital campaign. After telling us about their planning stages, Rich will take us over to the Fish Ladder to give us a look at the progress they’ve made on the renovation project.
