Citing financial prudence as the best way to go, Newport Port Manager Kevin Greenwood says his commission has decided to put off indefinitely plans to build a new near-million dollar port administration building. While there has been huge progress made around port property, including the new NOAA complex and the International Terminal, port staff remains holed up in a manufactured-home type building “temporarily” located near Fogarty and Bay Boulevard.

But although their offices are cramped and inefficient, the commission agreed with Greenwood that now is not the time to be spending considerable sums on a new administration building.

Greenwood told News Lincoln County that the delays and uncertainty surrounding the creation of a log export operation at the International Terminal was a major factor in their decision. Teevin Brothers, in explaining their delays at building their log yard, said the Chinese market for raw logs has dropped substantially. However they add that they are still committed to building their $4 million dollar log operation and they are actively seeking a partner in moving the project forward.

But in the meantime, port commissioners have decided to put the proposed new port administration building on the back, back burner.
