Port of Camas-Washougal Industrial Park & Steigerwald Commerce Center
Two census tracts within the city of Washougal have been designated Opportunity Zones by the State of Washington, incentivizing private investment in the area through special tax breaks that will stimulate economic development and job creation. After a highly competitive application process, Governor Jay Inslee approved 139 tracts in 36 counties statewide for this new program on Friday, April 20, 2018. The initiative was a collaborative effort between the Port of Camas-Washougal, the City of Washougal and the Camas Washougal Economic Development Association (CWEDA).
The 300-acre Industrial Park was established in 1966 when the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers created a 5.5-mile levee along the Columbia River, west of the Steigerwald National Wildlife Refuge. The industrial park is home to more than 40 businesses. The port provides facilities and services for land, air, and rail-based commerce in order to enhance employment and economic growth, contributing to the quality of life in the community.
