ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT, DREDGING
Martin’s Bar has excellent waterfront capabilities. These two parcels combined provide approximately 70 acres of deep water industrial property. The South site is currently used for dredge spoils for the US Corps of Engineers as part of the Columbia Channel Maintenance and Operations. The Port manages the aquatic lands through a Port Management Agreement.
The Port received Washington State CERB funding for the Martin Bar Study that will examine the following:
- Transportation and Public Access
- Infrastructure Assessment
- Environmental and Regulatory
- Commodity Market Assessment
- Conceptual Planning
The study is planned to begin in mid 2020 and complete in 2021. There will be numerous opportunities to participate in the process with several open houses throughout the study period. To be on a notification list regarding the study, please contact the Port.
