Economic Development

Ports are, by their charge, economic development organizations. Traditionally, ports focus on a mix of transportation – water, rail and air – and property/infrastructure to facilitate job creation. The Port of Pasco has long, successfully followed this formula. Whether attracting new business to the region or assisting existing businesses in expanding, the Port has worked to maximize our role in economic and work force development.

The Port of Pasco also recognizes the importance to taking a broader role in economic development.  It’s about taking leadership in helping create a strategic, long-range plan for the region, assisting with business development programs and working cooperatively with community and regional partners.  We believe our economic development efforts help keep our talented workforce here and create new opportunities for work force development.
