Let's get moving on the Longview coal export terminal! This project has been on hold for four years awaiting permits. These environmental studies need to get moving.
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.
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.
