This rolling stone gathers no moss. The port is active, pursuing projects that will improve the lives of residents and creating opportunities to enhance the economic prosperity of port district citizens and business owners.
Quality development on port-owned properties and establishing dark fiber infrastructure in Ridgefield and the Discovery Corridor are priorities for the Port of Ridgefield.
A key port property is Millers’ Landing, a 41-acre mixed-use waterfront site adjacent to downtown Ridgefield. The port is seeking a development partner who can catch the port commission’s vision for a jobs-producing project that fosters a publically-accessible, dynamic and exciting waterfront atmosphere for Ridgefield citizens and visitors.
The port’s dark fiber project will make high-speed data fiber available for lease to internet service providers and others who wish to meet the data needs of businesses and citizens in the Discovery Corridor.
In July of 2017 the Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife moved it’s Region 5 headquarters operation into a building recently constructed by the port on port-owned property at Wisdom Ridge.
Here, the department will oversee local wildlife programs, customer service and fishery management. In a recent statement, Guy Norman, the former regional director of the Department of Fish and Wildlife, stated, “Ridgefield is an ideal location for the region headquarters with quick access to the freeway and it’s closer to the majority of our field work than our current location in Vancouver. This site will enable us to conduct our field operations more efficiently and also provide convenient access for our customers.”
Look to Ridgefield for your next commercial or light industrial home. Discovery Ridge is ready for development and awaiting residents who seek close proximity to I-5, multiple tax incentives, and a community of like-minded locals and business owners who value economic freedom and the pursuit of progress.
