Port of Lewiston Economic Impact
A recent study highlights the positive impacts the Port of Lewiston’s economic development activities have on the local economy.
The Port invests 100% of property taxes, plus revenue generated from general port operations back into Nez Perce County to purchase and develop land, infrastructure and facilities – activities to create jobs.
Steven Peterson, research economist and clinical assistant professor with the University of Idaho, completed an November 2021 study that helps taxpayers see their return on investment from the Port of Lewiston.
