All Port Districts in the State of Washington are required by RCW 53.20 to have a Comprehensive Scheme of Harbor Improvements on file and officially adopted by the Port Commission.

Because the Port of Columbia is an inland port district and therefore has no harbor to improve, the Comprehensive Scheme of Harbor Improvements is simply referred to as the Comprehensive Plan or Comp Plan.

The Port of Columbia worked with partner agencies Columbia County and the City of Dayton to develop a Cooperative Park Master Plan. Our county is rich with parks and recreation facilities and opportunities. The purposes of this document are to create a consolidated inventory of recreational opportunities in order to understand the future needs of the community and provide each jurisdiction with a Parks and Recreation Element in their comprehensive plans to be referenced and utilized for funding opportunities.

The plan also provides a detailed inventory of park and recreation lands for reference.
