I am writing about the Millennium coal export project. I believe this project is good for the community.
Millennium has helped clean up the old Reynolds facility and the Columbia River. The old industrial site had degraded water quality and fish habitats on the river. Millennium has completely turned this around. Millennium has demonstrated a commitment to do everything in its power to contribute to the well-being of the community and local environment. If you ask people in Longview what they think of Millennium, they will tell you they are a good neighbor, good employer and responsible steward of our environment.
In today's economic climate, the importance of adding a significant amount of family wage jobs should not be taken lightly. Millennium’s proposal is showing a commitment to being environmentally responsible, making safety a priority, and helping fuel our economy which is what we need. Please take these things in consideration while deciding the scope of this project. Thank you for your time.
