Notes:

In 1968, the Port of Newport succeeded in bringing its plan to improve the port at Siletz Bay to the attention of Federal authorities. The Port prepared a proposal for development of Siletz Bay to enable shipping out of the Bay. The project included jetties, a dredged channel , a dredged turning basin and constructed breakwaters to protect moored vessels. This is a transcript of a hearing about the Port’s plan, which was not implemented. This document includes the plan and supporting documents, exhibits from interested parties (not all of whom favored the plan), maps, and a list of participants.
