Ribbon cutting held for new Port of Clarkston Business Park.
CLARKSTON, WA - The Turning Pointe Business Park is now available for development, and Port of Clarkston leaders said they couldn't be more excited.

Construction crews broke ground more than four months ago.
130-acres of land has been paved and utilities have been put in place on a stretch of Evans Road outside the city of Clarkston.

The ribbon was cut Tuesday and leaders from the Port of Clarkston are eager to get businesses at the park. Port of Clarkston Manager, Wanda Keefer, said this park will create more jobs for people and help keep money in our economy.

"In the feasibility study they're predicting that it could mean up to $10 million that will benefit the community," said Keefer. "That's in the form of payroll, payroll taxes, property taxes, and just the way that dollars turn over in the economy."

Keefer said she can't tell us who, but there are several business owners interested in developing on the property. She said businesses could be moving out there in the next six-to-twelve months.
