Portland City Council sets public hearing on proposed propane export terminal in North Portland

Charlie Hales spoof Pembina

Posters have appeared around Portland spoofing Charlie Hales’ campaign materials. Hales ran as an environmentalist and is pushing for massing propane exports that would clog existing rail lines. ILWU Local 8 is actively opposing the project.

The Portland City Council will hold a public hearing June 10 on a proposed zoning amendment that would allow Pembina Pipeline to build a propane export terminal in North Portland.

The Port of Longview recently rejected a similar project. Officials there said the benefits didn’t outweigh the risks, and opponents in Portland hope to convince city commissioners to reach the same conclusion.
