West Hayden Island
The city of Portland is currently conducting a public process to explore annexation and creation of a long-range land use plan for West Hayden Island (WHI). This planning process has been underway since 2008, and the value of annexation is currently being discussed at the city of Portland Planning and Sustainability Commission.
While no development is currently planned for WHI, analysis shows that the region and the city of Portland have a scarcity of industrially zoned land. As required by City Council resolution, the Port has designated at least 500 acres of this land for open space and reserved no more than 300 acres for future marine terminal development. A concept plan has been created to map the possible land uses, which could include shipment of bulk products and autos. A final annexation agreement would address specific topics such as recreation, mitigation, land management, habitat preservation, security, repair and improvements of local roads and a community enhancement fund.
