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
