EUGENE — Lane County commissioners have delayed for two weeks their consideration of a proposed resolution supporting a coal cargo terminal at Coos Bay.
Such a terminal would handle coal trains shipped through Eugene.
The Register-Guard in Eugene reports that all five commissioners said Wednesday they supported the delay to give the public more time to comment. Interested parties will be able to comment at commissioners’ meetings Oct. 16 in Florence and Oct. 17 in Eugene.
Environmental groups are fighting several proposals for terminals at Northwest ports that would ship coal from Montana and Wyoming to Asia. Supporters include business and labor groups.
