Port Westward Rezoning

A few years ago the Port of St. Helens attempted to re-zone over 800 acres in Clatskanie from agriculture to industrial land.  Although our county commissioners approved the rezone, an appeal to LUBA (Land Use Board of Appeals) stopped the rezone.  Now an amended application attempts this rezoning again!  There are many reasons to oppose this.  If Global expands their existing terminal, they could work towards their maximum throughput that equal approximately 3200 trains per year.  That would average out to about 9 trains going and 9 empty trains returning EVERY DAY!  Whatever the result, industrializing prime farm land is a bad idea.

THERE IS A HEARING ON Wednesday AUGUST 2nd AT 6:00 PM AT THE CLATSKANIE HIGH SCHOOL!

I ask you to spread the word.  This is important.  We need agricultural land to remain.  Here is information about this meeting.
