Submission Text
The proposed coal export terminal at Longview should be approved. Millennium Bulk Terminals has a clear and environmentally-sound plan that will be studied to make this port a reality and it will do much to contribute to the economy and vitality of the region and the country. 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. Thank you for accepting comments for this important project. Please make the necessary steps to move forward on its approval as soon as possible.
