The strength of the construction industry in Southwest Washington is clearly displayed in the new buildings and expansion along the Vancouver Waterfront, the development in east county and along the Discovery Corridor, and Ridgefield’s ranking as the fastest growing city in the state[1]. These recent, revitalizing developments are bound to bring forth new housing, shopping, and job opportunities, all the while shaping a brighter future for our community.
