That could mean good news for Lone Wolf Development, owned by Washougal resident Wes Hickey, son of the late Ray Hickey, who once owned Vancouver-based shipping company Tidewater Barge Lines.
Graves talked with Lone Wolf owner Wes Hickey and found they agreed on fostering a sense of community in the downtown area.

But there's more to "live - work - play" than just mixed-use development, said Wes Hickey, manager of Lone Wolf Investments, which is developing Washougal Town Square. It's less about development than improving the community and establishing a long-term vision.
Hickey said Washougal Town Square, which offers retail and office space, as well as underground parking, is at about 25 percent occupancy, with six business tenants including a massage studio, a psychologist, a financial planner, a physical therapy office, and an ice cream store. A seventh tenant, 3E Enviro-Sciences, will be moving in soon. Hickey said he looked for business tenants that "care about how they do business and that believe in Washougal."
Hickey agreed, saying "office and retail feed off each other."
Hickey stated that people should understand that developing a successful "live - work - play" community takes time.
"The first phase is the most difficult," said Hickey.

There is a better way to develop our land, says Washougal developer Wes Hickey, and he is hoping to provide the model for how to do it.
There is a better way to develop our land, says Washougal developer Wes Hickey, and he is hoping to provide the model for how to do it.
Hickey's Lone Wolf Development is in the midst of constructing Washougal Town Square, a $13 million mixed-used building that fills a city block between 17th and 18th streets and "A" and "B" streets downtown.
The next phases of the project , three partial-block buildings on three separate blocks just north of the Town Square building , will likely break ground sometime in 2008.
Projections put the total construction cost at $45 million, and Lone Wolf did not use any subsidies or tax credits.
Hickey said he is not developing for the sake of development.
His aim is to demonstrate development that works with a city's "existing urban fabric," thereby creating a cohesive community and avoiding additional sprawling strip malls.
"We're pursuing what we're doing not from the perspective of developers, but with the goals of land conservation and community-building," Hickey said.
In that sense, it still has an opportunity to grow into a nice small town, whereas others have lost that ability to salvage their downtowns, Hickey said.
It will be energy and water efficient, and the little details like operable windows that allow for natural ventilation, a public courtyard that provides open space and a water fountain in the courtyard that only operates when it's raining, set the project apart, said Hickey, who grew up in Clark County and has lived in Washougal for 20 years.
Portland-based Walsh Construction Co. is building Washougal Town Square, which was designed by Portland-based Sienna Architecture Co.
The goal is not to target only Washougal's affluent upper crust, Hickey said.
"We keep coming back to community building, and within that, we're trying to cross the whole spectrum," he said.
Only 125 projects will be chosen nationwide, and Hickey said he expects to know by the end of May whether the project is picked.
What Hickey doesn't want for Washougal is a transformation into "Anytown, USA."
"I think people are starting to realize they liked having their sense of community, their own individual town," he said.
Now seemed like the right time to look at the project because of the financial investment on the parts of Hickey and the city, he said.
Hickey said philosophically, he doesn't believe in tax credits or subsidies for private development, but said Lone Wolf and the city of Washougal have worked quite cooperatively toward the same goal of a nice, sustainable community.

Plans call for the new facility, ..., 13 Mar 2012 [cached]
Plans call for the new facility, located in the heart of downtown Washougal in an existing building owned by Wes Hickey of Lone Wolf Development, to include a tasting room, pub and brewhouse.
This proposal will add a whole new dimension to what is being offered in downtown Washougal, and has the potential to be an excellent fit with the already existing businesses that include a popular ice cream shop and a restaurant catering to a different type of dining experience.
For those who take their microbrews seriously, and there are many in the Pacific Northwest who do, the Amnesia Brewing location in Washougal has the potential to become a destination spot for beer connoisseurs as well as those local residents who just want to take in a new experience offered right here in their hometown.
This announcement is good news for east Clark County, and for the slow-but-steady revitalization process of downtown Washougal that Hickey envisioned so many years ago and has remained committed to through even bumpy economic times.
