The environmental study for the Cowlitz County port should be completed expeditiously. Any American operation that puts people back to work should be supported in these tough economic times.
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.
In today's economic climate, the importance of adding a significant amount of family wage jobs should not be taken lightly. Millennium's proposal is showing a commitment to being environmentally responsible, making safety a priority, and helping fuel our economy which is what we need. Please take these things in consideration while deciding the scope of this project. Thank you for your time.
Sincerely, Charles Wylie firstname.lastname@example.org
