Vancouver seeks input on plan for Heritage Bank branch



Heritage Bank’s plan for a new east Vancouver branch does not pose a significant adverse impact to the environment, according to Vancouver’s Community and Economic Development Department, which has reviewed the proposal and is now accepting public comments.

The 3,100-square-foot branch would be built on a 25,000-square-foot retail pad at Southeast 164th Avenue and 18th Street, north of Gustav’s restaurant. It will be the second Vancouver branch for Olympia-based Heritage, which entered the Vancouver-Portland market when it acquired Bay Bank in 2010.

The city will receive public comments on the development until 4 p.m. Jan. 2. Send comments to or Patti McEllrath, Community and Economic Development, P.O. Box 1995, Vancouver, WA 98668.
