Allow me to submit my comments regarding Millennium Bulk Terminals proposed port at Longview. I fully support this project. 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. This proposal will see that jobs are returned, the local and regional economy is stimulated, tax revenues are increased, and environmental standards are maintained. This is what Cowlitz County needs in our present economy. Please move the scoping process along as soon as possible. Sincerely, Tony Singleton Tsingleton@archcoal.com
