I appreciate the agencies offering this opportunity to comment on Millennium Bulk Terminals DEIS. The port at Longview will bring many good paying jobs to Washington and will encourage the development of our natural resources nationwide, helping to lift us out of our current nationwide economic depression.
Cowlitz County has a surplus of industrial sites which impedes the development of the Reynolds Smelter site (due to cost of remediating and redeveloping a brownfield site). Millennium is taking on the redevelopment and can turn around a dilapidated, underutilized site. Grant the project its permits!
I can't think of one good reason why this port shouldn't move forward. I hope my comments will be considered and added to those of others asking for approval of this great project.
