Following the completion in January 2023 of the port strategic plan and market study performed for Northeast Missouri Regional Planning Commission by Decision Innovation Solutions; Bujanda & Allen; and MECO Engineering, the Clark County Commission, armed with the information provided by the study, started the process for the formation of the Northeast Missouri Regional Port Authority of Clark County. In conjunction with the City of Alexandria, the county commission approved the resolution for the creation of the port authority, which will include the entirety of Clark County, Missouri, the northeast corner of the state and the northernmost county in Missouri on the Mississippi River. The Clark County Commission appointed a preliminary board of directors to fashion by-laws for the proposed entity in preparation for an application to the state for port authority formation. With the assistance of the Northeast Missouri Regional Planning Commission, this official application has been fashioned to request official approval from the Missouri State Highway Commission sanctioning the formation of the port authority, as governed by Chapter 68 RSMo of the state statutes.
