CAMAS, WA-Commissioners for the Port of Camas-Washougal are lobbying for control over industrial land that it sold the State Parks and Recreation Commission nine years ago.

The port wants to buy back the 45 acres near Seigerwald National Wildlife Refuge that it sold to the parks commission for $911,800 in 1991. Earlier this year the Parks Commission was asking for $2 million for the industrial-zoned parcel that sits adjacent the port’s industrial park. The port wants the land for additional industrial park space.

The Interagency Committee for Outdoor Recreation has agreed to accept the port’s appraisal of the land. An appraisal of $1.9 million includes improvements paid for by the port including road, rail, water and sewer line extensions. A $1.7 million appraisal does not include those improvements already paid for by the port.

The State Parks and Recreation Commission will discuss the issue at its regular meeting on Friday, Sept. 22, in Ilwaco.
