Little Rock Port hires consultant for strategic planning

Posted By on Mon, Feb 23, 2015 at 10:52 AM

The Little Rock Port Authority Board has approved a $73,600 contract with Boyette Strategic Advisors to develop a strategic growth plan for the Port of Little Rock for the next five to 10 years, the port announced in a news release.


Chris Mathews, the Port Authority Board Chairman,noted that “The development of  this strategic growth plan will position the port to become more competitive in the global marketplace, with the ultimate goal of becoming America’s most efficient inland port.

The plan, when finished, will help the Port Authority attract those industries that will have the greatest positive impact on our community”.

I doubt this is part of the mission, but here's my idea about strategic growth planning around the port: Do everything necessary to help to provide smooth and high-profile access to nearby land recently acquired by the Quapaw Tribe of Oklahoma so that it may be developed into a full-fledged casino/entertainment resort such as those operated in Oklahoma.

My strategic advice charge: Free.
