Port Of Portland Names Task Force To Aid Staff On Master Terminal Plan
Port of Portland (Oregon) Commission president Joseph M. Edgar recently announced the appointment of a citizens task force to aid Port staff in the preparation of a master plan to guide the development of Port marine terminals through the year 2000. He named Robert F. Wallace, chairman of the board, First National Bank of Oregon, to head the 30- member committee.
"The task force has been selected to represent a broad range of interests affected by marine terminal development," Mr. Edgar said. "We expect the committee to complete its work in about six months." Mr. Edgar said the charge to the task force includes recommendations on the questions of space requirements, rehabilitation of existing facilities, developing more intensive use of existing terminals, and economic and environmental impacts associated with maintaining an efficient port. The task force also will look into appropriate means of financing future Port marine terminal development.
The master plan, a three-phase study, is scheduled for presentation to the Port Commission in March 1981, following a period of public review.
