Let's get moving on the Longview coal export terminal! This project has been on hold for over a year and a half awaiting study. These environmental studies need to get moving. Millennium Bulk Terminals have been actively engaging the community of Longview for the three years they have been at the old Reynold's site. Recent SEPA more limited environmental reviews for shipping terminals with similar rail traffic, vessel traffic and GHG emissions along the Columbia River should be used as guides for developing the scope of the SEPA review for the Millennium Project, such as the recent grain terminal approvals. Despite some negative opinions, this permitting process will produce facts that show a modern port can be planned by a company, then evaluated by an agency to provide ways for production portals, while at the same time protecting the environment and enhancing the socio-economics of a region. It will be a job well done! Sincerely, Patricia Thompson hawklady_1999@yahoo.com
