The Port of Tillamook Bay Board of Commissioners adopted their 2019 Strategic Business Plan at their meeting on Thursday, June 20. This updated plan will define the Board’s priorities for project planning and implementation over the next five years.
The priorities moving forward will be growing the UAS industry at the airport, Salmonberry Trail development, upgrading existing industrial park buildings and assets, planning for new construction, and continuing the dialogue on emergency planning within Tillamook County. The Port of Tillamook Bay is the core of the region’s industrial activity.
The Port of Tillamook Bay (POTB) recently wrapped up over $46 million in federal, state, and local funded projects and all of their newly built out spaces from the FEMA Alternate Projects are full. The Port wants to be the place for people to have their businesses, specifically in industrial and manufacturing industries.
“We are open to ideas and have strong relationships to assist with solid business plans and to assist in built-to-suit construction, Enterprise Zone tax credits, and a host of other items from our toolkit,” said Michele Bradley, General Manager of the Port of Tillamook Bay. “With the majority of the industrial land in the county, the Port is primed to host businesses of any size.”
