Submission Text
In a time that has included seeing neighbors and friends out of work and under-employed, we need to encourage economic development. In my opinion, that cannot happen soon enough. That is why I am writing today. The neighboring Port of Longview owns 275 acres at Barlow Point. Cowlitz County has long recognized that upgrades to the Reynolds Short Line were desired long before Millennium presented its proposal. To serve the industrial and export terminal areas improvements to the Reynolds short line have been desired with or without Millennium’s proposal. Now that the rail corridor has been studied, now it’s time for progress on the Millennium project! Thank you for accepting comments for this important proposal. The Millennium project will do a great deal for the economic outlook of this country. Let's get Americans back to work!
