2007 AAPA Maritime Economic Development Committee Workshop
June 19, 2007 Oxnard, CA
Ports are under increasing pressure to meet growth demands while at the same time working to maintain their current footprint in the face of community development priorities. The workshop addressed best practices in dealing with the “gentrification” of port property and the use of eminent domain as a tool to meet the demand for more land area.
