It's with great enthusiasm that I write today to express my support of the DEIS, the study was thorough and it’s time to get Millennium Bulk Terminals port off the ground and under construction. We need the jobs this terminal will provide.
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!
Millennium Bulk Terminals in Longview is offering to create jobs and livelihoods in a beautiful area of the country. This project deserves support for all the benefits it will provide. Thank you for letting me lend my support to it.
