Port of Ridgefield is Named Port of the Year

Port of Ridgefield

The Washington Public Ports Association (WPPA) named the Port of Ridgefield as the recipient of its annual Port of the Year Award at a Dec. 12 ceremony in Bellevue. WPPA has made this award each year since 1987 to recognize a member port that has demonstrated exceptional success in the industry. There are currently 75 member ports operating within Washington State.

While the port’s nomination application included a host of development projects completed within the last year totaling over $9 million, WPPA cited the port’s extensive, multi-year, $90 million environmental cleanup of the Port of Ridgefield’s 41-acre waterfront site – Millers’ Landing – as the determining factor for the award. The site was cleared for development late last year.
