Kalama named Washington state's 'Port of the Year'

The Washington Public Ports Association (WPPA) has honored the Port of Kalama with the state Port of the Year Award.

The port was honored for "combining long-term vision and innovative planning to create jobs and improve the community's quality of life," according to a Port of Kalama press release. Port officials received the award earlier this month at the WPPA annual meeting in Seattle.

This year the port received a number of awards, community infrastructure projects and acclaim as a business-friendly climate, port officials said.

Other awards have included the Pathways 2020 Community Champions Award for Economic Vitality, which recognizes organizations that excel at creating jobs, employee wellness, training, employable skills, new or expanding business, transportation, financial security, reducing poverty, and higher wages.

Infrastructure projects completed this year include the 24-acre Haydu Park.
