With an eye toward meeting potential development partners for Millers’ Landing – the Port of Ridgefield’s newly available 41-acre waterfront development site – port representative recently invested resources and time to participate in a national public-private partnership conference held in Dallas, TX. Port representatives attending the event were Commissioner Scott Hughes, CEO Brent Grening, and Director of Business Development, Randy Mueller. The agenda for the forum included programming that covered a wide-spectrum of topics and partnership opportunities with specially-designed sessions for public-planners and architecture, engineering and construction professionals. The port secured an exhibit booth for the opportunity to talk with some of the 800 people in attendance. Grening also delivered a full on-stage presentation about Millers’ Landing to a subgroup of event-goers. For more information about the port, visit www.portridgefield.org.
