|PORT OF LONGVIEW ADDS INDUSTRIAL PROPERTY|
The Port of Longview, Washington USA seized

River. The acquisition nearly doubles the Port's industrial
property, which was near capacity without remaining
riverfront property available for development.
zoning and location of the property adjacent to the Columbia River
shipping channel make this property ideal for future marine industrial
development," said Port of Longview Executive Director Ken O'Hollaren.
The channel will soon be able to load ships to depths of 43
feet when the long-awaited Columbia River channel deepening
project is completed this year.
"The Commission has been well
aware that we lack industrial property for expansion and have made this
issue a key placeholder in our new master plan," said Commission Chairman Bob Bagaason on behalf of fellow Commissioners Dan Buell and Darold Dietz.
"With this purchase we are ensuring that we will have the space
to grow and generate benefits for our community for years to come."
