Port Executive Director Jack Crider sent two letters of intent to sublease property at the Port of Astoria’s North Tongue Industrial Park.

One letter went to Warrenton Fiber, owned by Martin and David Nygaard, who have proposed to build a sawmill, dry kilns and co-generation facility on eight acres of tarmac at the industrial park. The Nygaards want access to piers and the railway that runs to Tongue Point, according to Crider’s letter. A phone call to project manager Steve Fulton was not returned Wednesday.

Another letter went to Tongue Point Investors LLC, owned by Astoria resident Dean Larson, who also owns an excavating business and the Trails End Recovery recycling facility in Warrenton.
