Century Agenda: Our plan for the future
Starting in 2008, three years in advance of the its 100th birthday, the Port of Seattle began creating a “Century Agenda” — building a comprehensive vision and strategic plan that focuses on the port’s next quarter-century of business and operations. The goal of the Century Agenda
is to build upon the accomplishments of the past century with a visionary look forward to the emerging challenges and opportunities of the 21st century. This Commission-led process includes port employee engagement, public outreach opportunities and planning with the major lines of business. Watch a short Century Agenda video here
