49th District town hall will focus on CRC plan



Lawmakers from the 49th Legislative district have announced a town hall meeting March 16 that will focus on the Columbia River Crossing project.

The two-hour meeting is scheduled for 10 a.m. to noon in the Clark and Pacific rooms of Educational Service District 112 at 2500 N.E. 65th Ave. in Vancouver.

Sen. Annette Cleveland, Rep. Jim Moeller and Rep. Sharon Wylie said they will use the forum to hear concerns and questions from constituents and address topics of contention and misinformation.

In a press release announcing the meeting, the three lawmakers said the new bridge is an important project, not just for the district but for the state and the entire region, and merits a forum all its own.
