To achieve this ambition, the port will hire a consultant to help it explore options for acquiring additional land, partnering with private parties, and exploring new commercial opportunities. In addition, the study may lead to an overall master plan.
Some of the commercial endeavors that the port would consider include load/unload and staging of industrial and renewable energy equipment and materials, maritime services, and shipping goods and products including, but not limited to, agriculture, petrochemical, oil and gas, aggregate, and containers.
The port’s 75-acre western tract between the port and a gated residential community has been identified as a potential commercial center due to its good access and adjacency to municipal utility lines. Mixed commercial, office and light industrial, a shopping center, or mixed-use development are possible uses.
