Oil refinery at night

Encourage Whatcom County Council to pass groundbreaking land use code governing oil refineries

From Re-Sources.org:

Whatcom County Council will vote as early as this summer on groundbreaking changes to the land use code that governs heavy-impact industries, especially oil refineries, at Cherry Point. We are very hopeful they will pass these amendments, improving the process for considering and permitting new projects at Cherry Point’s existing heavy industries. 

Whatcom will likely be the first county in the western United States to prohibit new fossil fuel transshipment facilities, coal plants, piers and wharves in its biggest industrial zone, as well as pass several other measures to protect public health and the environment. 

Thank the Council for their work in this process!
