With the recent announcement that it appears that the Port of Newport now has secured enough financing to largely finish Newport’s International Terminal, the port is accepting various development proposals from leading import and export companies that would like to use the port. Estimated launch of the to-be newly completed facilities is expected sometime after the first of next year.
Therefore, the Port of Newport Board of Commissioners invites everyone to participate in a round table discussion regarding the opportunity for maritime trade through the Port of Newport International Terminal. Port Commissioners would like any and all persons to come and listen to experts from the log and wood products industry and environmental professionals, and join in discussions with them about the cumulative effects of operating a marine cargo facility in our waterfront community; both export as well as import. Monday’s meeting will provide an opportunity for interested persons to direct their questions about log exports to the Port of Newport and to log handling company representatives.
The special meeting of the Port of Newport in a public forum is scheduled for Monday, April 16th, 6pm, Room 140 at the Newport Campus of Oregon Coast Community College.
Directions: From Highway 101 at South Beach, turn east on 40th Street and drive up the hill. Follow the road around to the south and looke for the main entrance to the college.
New Terminal Facilities Will:
Improve port access for commercial fishing boats, link marine commerce and Oregon’s highways and retain and create new jobs and development opportunities.
