The City’s oil terminal resolution will be on the agenda. Here are all of the details from Don Steinke with the Sierra Club Beyond Coal and Oil Task Force in Vancouver:
We need overflow crowds and more speakers to let the city council know we support the two resolutions they are considering:
- one to intervene in the EFSEC proceeding,
- one to oppose the proposed oil terminals at the Port of Vancouver and elsewhere.
Let them know who you are, why you care, and that you support both resolutions. This meeting will be a crucial turning point in our fight to stop the oil terminal from being approved – the time for action is June 2! The 6:30 p.m. meeting is at the Hilton. Parking is free in the parking lot west of City Hall (corner of 6th and Esther).
Additional meeting details and how to sign up to testify:
WHAT: City of Vancouver to vote on resolutions against dangerous oil terminals at the Port of Vancouver and elsewhere.
WHERE: Vancouver Hilton Convention Center – Heritage Ballroom, by Esther Short Park, 301 W 6th St, Vancouver, WA, 98660
WHEN: Monday, June 2nd, 6:30 pm
WHY: To voice your support for both of the Vancouver City Council resolutions on oil.
PARKING: In parking lot west of City Hall (415 W. 6th St)
We think it would be very effective for 100 people to come to the mic just to say your name and that you support bothcity council resolutions.
The two undeclared councilmembers don’t need more facts, they just need to know where their community stands.
The public will be allowed to give testimony up to 2 or 3 minutes in length. Please sign-up ahead of time to speak. Send an email directly to CCTestimony@cityofvancouver.us and provide:
Your full name,
topics of interest (EFSEC Intervener Resolution and/or Council Policy Resolution),
and stance on the topics (if you are opposed to the oil terminal then say you are in favor of both resolutions).
Emails will be taken up to 2 pm on Monday June 2nd. In-person testimony sign-up will also be taken Monday evening.
An overflow crowd makes a strong statement. Please promote attendance by posting this invitation on Facebook.
This could be a celebration. See you there.
