Statewide Strategic Planning for Oregon’s Port System

In 2010, the Business Oregon Infrastructure Finance Authority (IFA) developed Ports 2010: A New Strategic Business Plan for Oregon’s Statewide Port System (Statewide Business Plan) to define the state’s role and investment in Oregon’s 23 ports. The Statewide Business Plan identified the key strengths and significant challenges of Oregon’s port system and recommended a centralized program to finance the infrastructure necessary to support the development of individual port projects. Through the Statewide Business Plan, the state required each port to update its strategic business plan to ensure consistency with the statewide plan. This paper describes the strategic business plan process and, through case study examples, highlights how coordination between local ports and the state can leverage limited funding resources to achieve significant economic impact.
