PORT OF SKAGIT HONORED WITH WPPA’S PORT OF THE YEAR AWARD

BELLEVUE, WA (December 7, 2018)– The Washington Public Ports Association recognized the Port of Skagit with its annual Port of the Year award.

The annual award recognizes a WPPA member port that demonstrates exceptional success in the industry. The selection committee cited the Port of Skagit’s accomplishments during the year, including the SWIFT Center property transfer, PACCAR land sale and Watershed Business Park land acquisition, La Conner Marina Dredge project, $2 million in broadband grant and loan funding from Skagit County and the Community Economic Revitalization Board and the addition of twenty-one new business tenants.

“What the Port has accomplished over the past year for the community is truly amazing and it is an honor to have that recognized by the WPPA,” said Port of Skagit Commission President Dr. Kevin E. Ware. “But, the credit should all go to the staff. You could not find 33 more dedicated and hardworking public employees anywhere in the country.”  

“Recognition of the Port of Skagit for their accomplishments this past year is well deserved,” said WPPA President Troy Stariha, a commissioner at the Port of Kalama. “They continue to create economic development while maintaining quality of life for their community in an environmentally responsible way. Congratulations to the Port of Skagit.”
