The Strategic Business Plan serves as the primary strategy document for the Port Commission, staff, and Port constituents to guide operations, projects, and practices for the next five years. This 2021-2026 Strategic Business Plan provides an update to the Port of Hood River’s prior plan, published in 2014. Since the Port provides several diverse services and facilities to residents and visitors to the Port District, the Port strives to make the contents of the Plan accessible to different audiences with different areas of interest or need for detail.
The summary focuses on the key actions (construction, maintenance, programs, policies and regulations) the Port intends to take over the next five years regarding the facilities and services. The Plan document gives more information about why and how the Port created the Plan, why and how the Port is pursuing its selected goals with certain actions, and the schedule and cost for implementing improvements. The Plan document has 33 Appendices that contain the background information and analysis that support its recommendations.
This plan was developed by Port of Hood River staff with assistance by consultants as directed by the Port of Hood River Commission. Special thanks to the citizens of the Port District, Port of Hood River employees, the City of Hood River, Hood River County, Pageworks Design, EnviroIssues, Terry Moore of Good Next Steps, and the staff and leaders of Business Oregon and the Port Planning and Marketing Fund.
