While meeting with EWU Planning students (see below), the topic of an increase in coal trains through our area came up. We were asked when the public meeting is to discuss the environmental impact statement (EIS) that three agencies plan to jointly prepare for a proposed bulk-cargo shipping terminal and rail spur improvements in Seattle.

We thought it was in November, but Conservation Northwest reports it is Tuesday, December 4 from 4-7 p.m. at the Spokane County Fairgrounds.
Whatcom County, the Washington Department of Ecology (Ecology), and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) are together conducting the EIS process for the proposed terminal projects and will jointly produce one EIS.
