Port of Woodland
Breaking Ground for Growth and Development
Through careful planning and hard work, the Port of Woodland finds itself uniquely primed for development. Since its formation in 1960, the same time construction of the Interstate 5 corridor was reshaping the area, the Port of Woodland has been both a leader and active community partner in planning how our South County region grows.
The Port of Woodland is located on the Columbia River in the beautiful Lewis River Valley. Its proximity to I-5, mainline railroads, deep draft shipping channels, metropolitan areas, and opportunities to “get away from it all” has created a growing community with a strong mix of commercial, industrial, residential, and recreational areas that serve both the companies who site there and their employees.
Doing Business Now and Looking to the Future
The Port of Woodland has several hundred acres of light and heavy industrial property including three Industrial Parks – two are currently filled and the third is under construction. The Rose Way Industrial Park is a $4 million investment in infrastructure, and will soon have buildings, ranging in size from 15,000 to 25,000 sq.ft., available for lease at competitive rates by light industrial and manufacturing businesses.
Additionally, the Port of Woodland has two deep water accessible properties on the Columbia River currently under development.
Business is Better Here
As a community partner, the Port of Woodland places importance in economic growth and creating jobs, but it also strives to provide recreational opportunities, support community events and organizations, and improve the quality of life of residents and visitors.
This can be seen in its dark fiber project, providing fiber optic infrastructure and connectivity to needed areas in the port district, and its Capital Community Development Project, allocating funds to numerous nonprofits and businesses to be used for community improvement projects.
