Submission Text
Longview's Highlands neighborhood is closest to the rail lines. It currently has high rates of respiratory illness and a large percentage of low income and minority families. I am concerned that a disproportionately high share of the environmental, including health, economic, and social effects of the terminal will impact this neighborhood. Environmental justice mandates that the affects on human health, economic and social impacts on these populations must be analyzed. Please include this assessment in the EIS.
