The trade industry is one of the bright spots in an otherwise bleak economy. Please approve the coal export terminal at Cowlitz County and speed up the permitting process to help get our economy moving again.
Unlike many port operations, Millennium occupies a location without immediate residential neighborhoods, AND it is an existing brownfield site. It should be understood that alternate locations do not exist for situating an export coal facility with the necessary water and rail access without gentrification impacts
