I did hear back yesterday from the Port of Portland about the property next to Costco in Hillsboro. They cited a number of issues before they said "No":
- Re-purposing of the land for recreational use
- FAA concerns about bird strikes
I know, it's crazy! By the end of the conversation, I summed up their answer as "...it's just easier for you (the Port of PDX) to not do anything." They agreed.
I knew it was a long shot, and it doesn't hurt to ask. Disappointing, yes. I'll be directing my efforts towards another property in Hillsboro.
