Port of Camas-Washougal Nets Grant

The Port of Camas-Washougal recently garnered a $3 million Economic Development Administration grant, which will allow the port to build a new 50,000-square foot industrial building for area manufacturing companies that will be divided into 15 separate 3,300-square-foot bays.

The port was able to obtain this funding with the help of Congresswoman Jaime Herrera Beutler, Senators Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell.

The project is expected to generate 130 jobs and $10.6 million in private investment. It will also help bolster economic activity in the area and draw more business to the port’s industrial park in Washougal.

There’s been a demand for more industrial space in recent years, prompting the port to double its industrial space to over 340,000 square feet. This translated into the construction of four industrial buildings totaling 145,000 square feet and the acquisition of two industrial buildings totaling 41,344 square feet.
