Port 10 Year Vision Statement (11/2013)

In the year 2023…The Port of Cascade Locks, located in the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, is a business friendly engine for economic development. The Port is responsible for the creation of more than 500 jobs within the community of Cascade Locks in the last ten years. The Port’s success is due largely to collaborative partnerships and grant funding for stable infrastructure. The industrial park is now served by a full interchange on Interstate-84.
