A WORLD CLASS PROJECT
Growing Jobs. Expanding Trade.
COAL EXPORT TERMINAL
At Millennium Bulk Terminals-Longview, we know fulfilling the remarkable potential for our facility requires careful planning, hard work and a commitment to community.
This is an opportunity to redevelop existing underutilized industrial land into a vibrant world-class port facility. The economic impact study independently conducted for the coal terminal projects the creation of hundreds family wage jobs and millions in tax revenue.
The $650 million dollar construction project will provide jobs and revenues to the surrounding communities through routine procurement of construction and operations materials.
“This agreement goes well beyond jobs for our members; it is for the entire community. With so much money injected into the local economy providing living wage jobs and preferences for local sourcing of materials, like tools, welding supplies, electrical and plumbing supplies, steel and concrete, Millennium will help to get our local economy back on track.”
— said Jeff Washburn former president of the Longview/Kelso Building and Construction Trades Council
In February 2012, Millennium submitted several permit applications in order to develop a world-class export facility on the Columbia River at Longview, Washington. As we advance through the permitting process, we are committed to working closely with co-lead agencies comprised of the Army Corps of Engineers, Cowlitz County, and the Washington State Department of Ecology, to obtain all necessary permits and authorizations to construct the proposed coal export terminal.
Once the permits are approved, construction will inject hundreds of millions of dollars into local economies and generate substantial tax revenues. This provides long-term economic benefits by creating and supporting hundreds of family-wage jobs throughout the region.
Take a look at the timeline below to get a sense of our progress and what lies ahead in the permitting process.
A key component of the permitting process was the scoping period, in which members of the public were invited to provide input to the regulatory agencies. We are thankful for hundreds of community members and Millennium supporters who testified in favor of a timely and independent review process. Hear what supporters had to say at these public meetings.
