The Fossil Fuel Terminal Zoning Amendments restrict the development and expansion of bulk fossil fuel terminals. These Zoning Code amendments were adopted by the Portland City Council on Dec. 14, 2016. That ordinance was appealed to the Oregon Supreme Court and is now back before the Portland City Council.
City Council will hold a public hearing on Nov. 20, 2019 at 2 p.m. to reconsider the Fossil Fuel Terminal Zoning amendments. These code changes restrict development and expansion of bulk fossil fuel terminals. You can provide verbal testimony at this hearing or provide written testimony through November 20 using the online Map App.
The existing bulk fossil fuel terminals in Industrial and General Employment zones become “limited uses” that can continue to operate. Expansion of fossil fuel storage at these existing terminals would be prohibited with limited exceptions.
