Submission Text
As someone who treasures the natural beauty of the American west, I ask that the environmental study for the Longview port proposal be accepted as thorough and sufficient. The planning behind this project is thorough and careful and will do much for utilizing our natural resources without compromising the environment. Millennium Bulk Terminals has been a good community member in the City of Longview for the last five years. The support local charities and many of their employees are active volunteers. I believe they are a good neighbor and their environmental review should be treated like every other commodity down at the Port of Longview. We need more good corporate citizens in Longview. Thank you for accepting comments for this important project. Please make the necessary steps to move forward on its approval as soon as possible. Furthermore it will help this large area grow and prosper. Longview has been held back way too long and it suffers from the aging population that doesn't want change. Let's embrace the change now so it can be guided in the right direction.
