VOC/CIA Projects:

The Gateway Pacific Terminal is one of the largest job creating projects to be proposed in the history of Whatcom County and will provide a much needed boost to our local economy., while upholding the most stringest environmental standards.

 The Terminal will be a major producer of Local family-wage jobs. The project will create 3,500 - 4,400 local jobs and $74 to $92 million in local and state tax revenues during the two year construction period. Ongoing operations will sustain 860 to 1,250 direct and indirect jobs while generating $8 to $11 million in state and local taxes which will benefit schools, fire districts, and other public services our community relies upon.

You can help! Please vist the website www.gatewaypacificterminal.com/support page and take action by signing the petition so the GPT project moves on and it becomes a reality for Whatcom County. THANKS!
