Dear Agency Staff,
I support the proposed port facility in Longview. The environmental review of this project has taken too long and it is time to allow Millennium to invest $680 million in southwest Washington.
The new bulk commodity export facility will revitalize an old, underutilized industrial site. Millennium is cleaning up the site and the new project will create hundreds of jobs. Washington can have economic development while still protecting the environment.
The draft EIS for this project is extremely thorough. It is now time to put southwest Washington to work. Please publish the final EIS quickly and issue the permits.
It seems that some people are against ANY kind of industry that provides good jobs for hundreds. We live in a world that has many risks and dangers - we can't live in a world that is completely without risk. The risks of this project are minimal compared to the benefits it will provide.
