2023 Budget and Capital Improvement Plan

The Port of Seattle 2023 Budget and 2023-2027 Capital Improvement Plan reflects the Port’s strategy to promote economic opportunities and quality of life in the region by advancing trade, travel, commerce, and job creation in an equitable, accountable, and environmentally responsible manner.

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Port is focused on maintaining our operations while adjusting to high inflation, changes in the labor market, and the impacts of climate change.

Our 2023 budget expands critical infrastructure to keep our region competitive and make travel and trade more efficient.  The budget and capital plan expands economic opportunity for local communities and businesses, improves service at our facilities, supports global climate resilience, and invests in local sustainability initiatives.

The Port is holding virtual community presentations to share how we are allocating resources to advance our Century Agenda goals to:

  • Position the Puget Sound region as a premier international logistics hub

  • Responsibly invest in the economic growth of the region and all its communities
