Public hearing Jan. 11 on Terminal Island project
December 9, 2011
The Port of Long Beach has released a draft environmental impact report on a proposal to build a grain export facility at Pier T on Terminal Island.
Total Terminals International LLC (TTI) has proposed to build a facility that would transfer grain from railcars into ocean shipping containers. The project would export 750,000 to 1.5 million tons of grain per year utilizing existing rail and container shipping facilities. The facility would use about 10 acres on Pier T.
The public is encouraged to comment on the draft document, which is available at www.polb.com/ceqa.
The Port will host a public hearing to solicit comments on the document on January 11, 2012, at 7 p.m. at Long Beach City Hall Council Chambers, 333 W. Ocean Blvd., Long Beach, 90802. Parking is available in a structure accessible off Broadway between Chestnut and Cedar avenues.
