Submission Text Sent:Friday, October 25, 2013 12:47 PM Subject:Millennium's coal export EIS
This project is an example of how ports should be developed and I would like to see it move forward without delay. Unlike many port operations, Millennium occupies a location without immediate residential neighborhoods, AND it is an existing brownfield site. The EIS should acknowledge that alternate locations do not exist for situating an export coal facility with the necessary water and rail access but without "gentrification impacts" from existing or potential residential development at an exiting brownfield site along the Columbia River. Thank you for letting me submit my opinions and show my support for the project. Sincerely, Paul Giuntini
