THE PEOPLE SAY NO, THE MAYOR SAYS NO! but THE PORT OF PORTLAND SAYS YES! TO PEMBINA PROPANE TERMINAL.
Come to the Port of Portland Commission* meeting this coming Wednesday morning, May 13th and let the Port Commissioners know that THE PEOPLE SAY NO, NO, NO!!! to Pembina and to the Port of Portland.
Port Commission Meeting:
Wed. May 13th, 9:30 AM, 8th floor Chinook Room
7200 NE Airport Way
Carpool meet-up: 8:30am sharp, 2249 E Burnside.
Please come and urge your friends and contacts to come and let the Port know that the people of Portland want nothing to do with this unsafe, environmentally destructive, climate changing project and the corporation that has proposed it.
We will be meeting up at 9:00 AM in front of the elevators on the 8th floor of the Port Headquarters. (see directions below). Feel free to bring materials that show your opposition to the Pembina proposal.
The Port Commission does not provide for general public testimony at its meetings. However, it is possible to sign up to testify on any item on the meeting agenda. The first action item on the agenda is “Requesting approval of the Port of Portland’s Risk Management Plan.” It seems clear that, thinking broadly in local, regional and global terms, the proposed Pembina Propane Terminal represents a clear safety, environmental, economic and climate risk which is not adequately addressed in the Port’s Risk Management Plan. (See the Port of Portland 5/13 agenda online for details of their risk management plan.) If you agree with this assessment, please sign up at the beginning of the meeting and provide testimony regarding your concerns to the commissioners.
Directions: The Port Headquarters is located on top of the long term parking building. If driving to the airport follow signs to the large new long-term parking structure near the terminal. Park in the structure. Your parking ticket will be validated if you attend the Commission meeting. Once parked, follow the signage to the elevators to the Port Headquarters.
If taking the MAX, you can access the Port Headquarters elevator from the terminal building using the north tunnel (at the north end of the lower level baggage area) to the Port elevator.
*Please note that, of the nine commissioners appointed by the Governor, seven are corporate executives.
