Project includes plans for a new public water system to serve site
    In an effort to diversify the tax base and create family wage jobs for the Burbank community, the Port has begun efforts to develop a new industrial park.
    In December 2002, after many years of effort, the Port successfully traded 122 acres of wetland property located at the confluence of the Columbia and Snake

Rivers to the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service in return for 158 acres of developable property adjacent to U.S. Highway 12.
     Since acquiring the property, the Port has created an industrial park master plan to help guide its future use.
     The plan envisions a mixed-use development including light industrial and commercial areas in an attractively landscaped industrial park environment.
     The Port is currently in the process of
planning a new public water system to serve the Burbank area site. In addition to meeting the needs of the industrial park, the new system will have capacity to serve other surrounding water districts should they need an additional water source in the future.
     The Port is seeking state and federal financial assistance for construction of the water system in fiscal year 2005.
