Port Pacific Shredding tussle over land price

first_imgA property dispute between the Port of Vancouver and Pacific Coast Shredding has intensified, with the two parties landing in Clark County Superior Court even as they exchange pointed words over how each side is handling the matter.At issue is how much the port should pay the company, a port tenant since 1997, for acquiring a piece of its property to build a key segment of the port’s $275 million freight-rail expansion project.Neither party will discuss what’s been offered or counter-offered for the roughly 1.1 acres of the nearly 14 acres Pacific Coast Shredding leases from the port.Both sides have said they’d prefer to settle on a price rather than have a court decide it under eminent domain rules, and they are still talking.
