This community appreciates all the benefits of living in a clean, productive and vibrant area. We still strive to clear our air, land and water and keep it free of petrochemicals. We struggle to understand why our elected Tacoma city and port officials are lurching in the opposite direction.
PSE’s proposed liquid-natural-gas facility is about a foreign-owned company breaking its contract with us and opening our port to industrial development and pollution, while keeping the facility’s impact on air, water and land behind closed doors. Another nasty secret is the impact on utility ratepayers.
After learning how our elected officials have interpreted the scope and clandestine nature of positions, I am skeptical of anything that’s built on the Tideflats without a full, transparent published environmental review and an imprimatur by the local Board of Health.
Redline Tacoma is a volunteer nonprofit, a genuine citizen-action group with no ax to grind other than the safety, healthy and beauty of our area. I’m so proud to be living here where ordinary people care so much.
