Port Meetings held every 1st & 3rd Tuesday of every month in the Board Room at 5 p.m. and are open to the public.




The Port of Hood River was created and incorporated on July 28, 1933 as a result of the Bonneville Dam Project, due to the expressed desire by the Oregon State Legislature and the United States Government to develop industrial land in the Columbia River Basin for jobs and economic development. The Port today is governed by its Commission composed of five elected members who continue to guide efforts to initiate, promote and maintain quality of life and a healthy economy throughout the Port District and the Columbia River Gorge.

MICHAEL S. McELWEE, Executive Director

On behalf of the Port Commission and staff, we hope the information on this web site will enhance your understanding and knowledge of the Port of Hood River. We are proud of our history of accomplishments in economic development, transportation and recreation. We hope you will learn about how we operate our public facilities, and current projects that are being developed. In particular, implementation of the BreezeBy electronic tolling and actions to develop the waterfront demonstrate that the Port is committed to its community stakeholders to facilitate job creation, improve transportation and enhance the recreational sites.

We encourage you to use the feedback areas on the web site to express opinions and offer suggestions on Port projects, operations, and facilities. The Port Commission welcomes public input on all subjects when considering policy actions.
