The next step is really for that port authority board to conduct their first meeting. I would expect that to be a sort of organizational meeting, where they might create things like bylaws.

We're very excited about the prospects of this project coming to the township and the county. These are really the types of projects that we feel are a great fit.

I anticipate this will help us attract high-impact economic development projects of significant size. The establishment of the port, we thought, was important at this time. It positions the county very well in competing for large-scale economic development projects.

This project should provide a tremendous shot in the arm for economic growth in eastern Delaware County.
