Flex 4 building, Cascade Locks, exterior
In Cascade Locks, two flex spaces are underway. The Port of Cascade Locks reported in February: “Flex 2 is now fully erected with contractors working to complete the electrical, plumbing and fire suppression system. […] The building is expected to be ready for tenants to move in by mid-March. Contractors were able to pour the concrete slab of Flex Building 4 the last week of December thanks to our mild winter weather. After a curing period, they were able to complete erection of red iron and the installation of the sheeting. Finally, the roof is currently being installed. The Port intends for Flex Building 4 to be ready for tenants to move in by the end of May.” Contact the Port for information at (541) 374-8619.
December 28, 2017 – MCEDD is partnering with the National Association of Development Organization (NADO) Research Foundation and Klickitat County Economic Development to identify potential solutions to transportation needs of employers in eastern Klickitat County.
Klickitat County’s economic development partnership was a primary factor driving this study. “MCEDD’s established relationship with Klickitat County Economic Development has been fruitful for both organizations, leading to the successful implementation of projects that have had a strong positive impact on Klickitat County’s economic development. This new collaborative effort will create further benefits for the communities within our region,” stated Richard Foster. “MCEDD’s growing involvement in transit issues is a real plus for our workforce, many of whom are commuting long distances in personal vehicles. The NADO study will help identify the transit market and will lead to lower cost options for worker commutes,” noted Dana Peck, Goldendale Chamber and MCEDD Board member.
