The port is committed to enhancing the economic climate of the community it serves.
Currently, it maintains and grows the local business community through development and maintenance of its 430-acre Industrial Park which plays a major role in bringing new and expanding companies to the area, averaging a 90+ percent occupancy rate, and providing the community with approximately 1000 jobs and an annual payroll of over $30 million.
Steigerwald Commerce Center
The Port has master planned the 125+ acres of land east of and adjacent to the existing Industrial Park, known as Steigerwald Commerce Center. Master planning includes designing and laying out the necessary infrastructure of roads and utilities with the goal of attracting businesses and bringing jobs. Phase I (Lincoln Street) was completed in the spring of 2014, opening up 25+ pad ready acres. The Port has already completed Building #15 and #17 and NW Adhesive has begun construction of their 30,000 square foot building on July 2016. Phase II (Grant Street Extension) will begin construction August of 2016 and open up another 50+ pad ready acres for development.
