PWWStrategic Industrial Site Port of St Helens 950 acres zoned as RIPD, remaining 781 acres zoned PA-80. Rezoning Application submitted SB 766 Application being worked Deepwater access (50-70 ft at Dock). Underutilized 1200 ft dock Electric rates more competitive One of last large industrial sites available within close proximity to Portland Exceptional rail service Unemployment significantly higher that Portland MSA (8.8 %) Significant investment made by PGE, the Port, the county, & the state…need to follow through on investments.
