City of Hoquiam Preservation Plan Hoquiam, Washington

Downtown Hoquiam includes a number of institutional, commercial, and residential buildings, dating from 1910-1930, that illustrate the town’s history as an early coastal settlement with its economy driven by the lumber industry.  Funded by a grant from the Washington State Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation (DAHP), BOLA created a Downtown Preservation Plan for the City of Hoquiam in 2010, with a historic survey and recommendations to guide future preservation and development.

The project involved reviews of earlier historic documentation; research on the city’s history, zoning regulations, and individual downtown properties; reviews of comparable plans with the City; and meetings with property owners, the community, and landmark commission.  BOLA prepared historic property inventory forms for the 77 properties.  In 2011-2012, the City received an additional DAHP grant to help guide the establishment of its downtown historic district.  BOLA was selected for a third grant-funded project in 2016, to develop design guidelines for the downtown historic district.
