Vancouver, USA Strategic Plan

By Karen Robes Meeks

The Port of Vancouver USA Board of Commissioners will take part of a special workshop on December 14 that focuses on updating the port’s strategic plan.

At the 8:30 a.m. workshop, which is open to the public, consultant Maul Foster & Alongi will give an overview of the strategic planning process. For much of next year, the consultant will be gathering input from stakeholders and staff members to help form the update, which is expected to be implemented in late 2018.

Although parts of the plan have been amended annually, this is the first time in more than a decade that the plan will be entirely updated.

“During that time, the port has grown and completed or made significant progress on many key initiatives, including the West Vancouver Freight Access Project and Centennial Industrial Building,” according to the port. “Work is now underway to develop and create a new strategic plan to guide port staff and resources for the next decade.”
