Submission Text
Southwest WA is suffering economically. I wish to voice my support for the proposed port at Millennium because I would like to see more projects like this be successful so that our economy can benefit. Millennium is improving our local environment by cleaning up an industrial site. I support their plans to redevelop the site into a world-class terminal. The project will create much-needed construction and operation jobs, greatly benefit the local economy, and contribute to Washington State’s role in international trade. The project proposal includes safeguards for the environment that will protect us, our children and grandchildren. Over $12 million has been spent by the County and Ecology on consultants to study the Millennium proposal, and this is money that could be better spent in our local community. It is time to bring the permitting process to a close and make a decision. Enough with the schedule delays, bring this process to a close.
