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.
These code changes restrict development and expansion of bulk fossil fuel terminals.
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.
City Council held a public hearing on Nov. 20, 2019 to reconsider the Fossil Fuel Terminal Zoning amendments. You can continue to provide written testimony through 9 a.m. on Dec. 2 using the online Map App. You also can read the testimony that has been submitted on Map App.
