Planning Documents in Process

Barlow Point Master Plan



The Process


The Port worked with consulting firms to present planning options for the property. High-level concepts included types of facilities, rail configurations and waterfront development, among other considerations the Port will weigh in its future development.

In summer 2014, Port Commissioners selected KPFF Consulting from three firms to create a Master Plan for Barlow Point. The plan – a blueprint for future growth – will outline the steps to develop the property, determine what infrastructure is needed and how much it will cost. 

Phase 1: Phase 1 feasibility included preliminary analysis related to development of Barlow Point property as a marine terminal, conceptual plan development, due diligence investigations and a market analysis. Phase 1 was completed in 2016.

Phase 2: Phase 2 includes a current study to aid in the determination of future pier structures, surveying, easement development, conceptual design of the rail onto the property, conceptual design of a new entrance off of State Route 432 and continuing environmental monitoring. Ongoing. 

Phase 3: Full Environmental Impact Assessment will be conducted on potential development scenarios. 

Phase 4: Development, based on market demand.
