I write today in support of Millennium Bulk Terminals coal export terminal. This is a project that is easy to support because it will benefit families both within and outside of its southwest Washington location. The project presents a path to employment for manyâ??let's makes it happen. 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 accepting comments for this important proposal. The Millennium project will do a great deal for the economic outlook of this country. Let's get Americans back to work!
