South County Destination Management: Cape Kiwanda

Planning Focus Area3

The Cape Kiwanda Master Plan

Tillamook County adopted the Cape Kiwanda Master Plan (September 2016) for Tourism-Related Facilities for Cape Kiwanda that identified ways to improve facilities and infrastructure that will:

  • Protect the beauty and natural resource values within and surrounding the community.
  • Minimize and mitigate impact of visitors within the community.
  • Improve visitor experiences and encourage longer stays.
  • Attract new visitors during “shoulder” seasons.

In developing the Master Plan, a Community Advisory Committee met twice to review and discuss key aspects and community members actively participated in three Community Meetings. As part of the planning process, the Cape Kiwanda Master Plan for Tourism Related Facilities – Existing and Planned Conditions Report (January 2016) and Appendix 4. Cape Kiwanda Roadway Study (February 2015) were developed.

Cape Kiwanda boardwalk coastAlthough the general planning area is quite expansive, the focus of the Master Plan is the area west of the Big Nestucca River between Cape Kiwanda and the intersection of Pacific Avenue and Cape Kiwanda Drive, including 8 largely contiguous parcels in public ownership consisting of approximately 284 acres.
