Will we get a glimpse of the sun this weekend? Check our local weather coverage.

In case you missed them, here are some of the top stories from the week:

Design proposals unveiled for Vancouver’s Terminal 1

A riverside public market house has always been the centerpiece of the Port of Vancouver’s Terminal 1 redevelopment project, but the early designs for the area’s other blocks are also aiming high when it comes to creating distinctive public spaces.

A two-story set of steps and terraced seating areas could become the visual centerpiece at the area’s northern end.

Man gets 33 years in 2017 Vancouver shooting, robbery

A man who was convicted in a 2017 Vancouver shooting and robbery was sentenced Tuesday in Clark County Superior Court to 33 years in prison.

A jury on Oct. 29 found Isaac Depre Frazier, 24, guilty on several counts following a weeklong trial. Frazier was convicted of assault and robbery, both in the first degree; weapons charges; first-degree burglary; and three counts of tampering with a witness.

Clark County Council hikes traffic impact fees, lifts urban holding

The Clark County Council raised traffic impact fees and lifted roughly 2,200 acres of land from urban holding designation in a largely rural area north of Vancouver around 179th Street.

Both steps taken Tuesday will further make way for future development at the interchange.

Man injured in struggle with home burglars north of Washougal

A man who lives northeast of Washougal was injured Tuesday night when he confronted a burglar and struggled with the masked, armed man and at least two other suspects, according to the Skamania County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies are asking for help in investigating the home burglary because the suspects have not been located.

East Vancouver Motel 6 visited by police hundreds of times each year

Last summer, SWAT officers surrounded the entrance of Motel 6 on Chkalov Drive in Vancouver as employees and customers at a pot shop across the street looked on.

Alisha Gonzales, an employee at The Herbery, said she watched as police arrested a young man and then escorted two children from the building. She characterized the raid as traumatizing but rare in its intensity. However, Gonzales said police patrol the motel daily, circling the area. Officers respond directly to the business several times a week, she said.

“It’s a problem. I wouldn’t go as far as calling what goes on destructive, but it definitely hurts our flow of customers,” Gonzales said. “We’ve had a few times where people stayed in the store until things settled down outside.”
