As a result of years of legal process, the City of Portland is finally able to re-adopt the Fossil Fuel Terminal Zoning Code Amendments. This prohibits the construction of new fossil fuel infrastructure that has the capability to transload fossil fuels or is larger than two million gallons in capacity, and the ordinance forbids existing bulk fossil fuel terminals from expanding in size, preventing any further potential damage to the local environment.
On November 20th, we showed up and heard community testimony in support of the ordinance, and now this Wednesday, December 18th, Portland City Council is poised to make their final vote to reinstate the law.
Join Oregon PSR and many other community partner organizations to support the vote and a renewal of Portland’s commitment to strong climate action, effective seismic resilience, and a safer Willamette River and Columbia River Gorge.
