Greater Spokane Inc. studying creating a port district

A city as far inland as Spokane is may not be the first place one would think of for a port district but that is what Greater Spokane Incorporated is now doing a study on siteing  that a port district can also be built near an airport as well,The idea to have a port in Spokane has been tried before but didn't make it very far but now GSI leaders feel the Port may be a good boost to the economy of Spokane.Work on the idea is well underway however GSI says it will have to go to a public vote and in which case will not hit the ballot tile 2013.Other then Spokane,Yakima is the only other city in Washington state without a port.This is still in very early phases so we will have to watch this closely.
