VANCOUVER, Wash. – Stakeholder feedback and goal areas are on the agenda for a Feb. 15 Port of Vancouver USA special workshop covering the ongoing process to update the port’s strategic plan.

The workshop is open to the public and begins at 8:30 a.m. at the port’s administrative offices, 3103 Northwest Lower River Road, Vancouver.

During the workshop, the port’s Board of Commissioners will hear an update on the planning process, learn about stakeholder feedback gathered over the winter and discuss goal areas for the port’s present and future.

The port plans additional stakeholder outreach and public meetings this spring and early summer to gather feedback, share progress and answer questions about its process to develop a new strategic plan that will guide port staff and resources for the next decade.
