The annual review of past achievement and a glimpse towards the future for port development will be the theme for the Prince Rupert Port Authority's Annual Public Meeting, scheduled for Wednesday, June 16th.
The virtual event will stream online live from 5PM to 6PM with access available through the rupertport.com/apm link on the Port's website.
With the importance of the Port to the regional economy, the review is one of the more anticipated of these types of events for communities beyond Prince Rupert, the notes in particular on future projects providing an indication of how those communities may benefit from the economic engine that the PRPA provides.
Of note for Prince Rupert area residents may be any updates that the Port may deliver on the progress of the Fairview Connector Road to Ridley Island which would reduce if not eliminate much of the truck traffic through the city.
A sample of what we may hear on the Connector project in June is currently available through the PRPA website.
As well the progress for the Wolverine Fuelling Terminal, Vopak Bulk Fuels Terminal and a number of Logistics Facilities planned for Kaien and Ridley Island could be among the projects that the Port may wish to share some updated notes on.
With expansion work on the Fairview Terminal footprint now underway, that project most likely will gain some attention next month as part of the overview of the future and how it will increase the throughput through the Prince Rupert gateway to the world.
You can get in some early research on the APM through the 2020 financial statements currently available on the Port website.
