Our economy and our families are suffering. We can do something about this by supporting the proposed port at Longview and completing the environmental study that will put people to work quickly and will keep them gainfully employed for years to come. Cowlitz County has a surplus of industrial sites which impedes the development of the Reynolds Smelter site (due to cost of remediating and redeveloping a brownfield site). The "no action" alternative should consider the negative impact an underutilized site has on other potential sites specifically including the City of Longview's Mint Farm industrial park. Thank you for accepting comments for this important project. Please make the necessary steps to move forward on its approval as soon as possible. Sincerely, lori lablack57@comcast.net
