Subject line: PSC Fossil Fuel Zoning Testimony
Provide the PSC with your full name and mailing address in letter.
Tell the City of Portland to amend the proposed draft to better reflect the city’s fossil fuel goals laid out in the resolution last fall. Send a comment urging that the City amend the proposal to reflect the city’s fossil fuel goes laid out in the resolution:
- Enact a full ban on all new fossil fuel terminals, large or small. An exception for new facilities that are 5 million gallons or less is unnecessary. The City’s code changes should not allow more unit trains of dangerous fossil fuels like Bakken crude oil.
- Strengthen restrictions on expansions allowed at existing facilities through adding binding limits in the City’s non-conforming use review process.
- Prevent any aggregate increase in fossil fuel infrastructure in Portland.
Attend upcoming hearing and rally to show support for a full ban.
