City issues two visions for adding industrial ports to west Hayden Island
Both ideas would restrict development to 300 acres
Consultant WorleyParsons has prepared two visions for adding marine terminals to west Hayden Island, while sticking to Mayor Sam Adams's proposal to limit the industrial development to 300 acres.
One option for the 830-acre undeveloped western half of the island allows more recreation, allows access to the area from Marine Drive, and keeps more shallow water intact, which is important to fish habitat. The second option allows access to the western part of the island via Hayden Island Drive, and maintains a larger patch of forest in the middle of the island.

The city Bureau of Planning and Sustainability scheduled open houses on Wednesday evening, Oct. 12, and Saturday morning, Oct. 15, to gather public feedback on the visions.
