The Millennium Bulk Terminals will bring jobs and stability to Cowlitz County. Export projects can easily contribute to the economic recovery of this nation and this project is ready to make that happen. Longview is home to many undeveloped and underutilized industrial properties, including multiple locations in the Port of Longview, Barlow Point, and the Mint Farm to name a few. It will take a visionary company to come in and take on the type of cleanup and redevelopment that is needed at the old Reynold’s site when it would be easier to develop on a greenfield industrial zoned neighboring property. It will be a major economic cost to the community if we DON’T have Millennium fully operational. We must support Americans looking for work. Millennium Bulk Terminals is one way to do that. Please don’t hold them up any longer.
