Status of SSLC Plans
(South Sound Logistics Center)

  •  June 20, 2008:  Port of Tacoma agreed to let the Interlocal Agreement run out!! 
    This means that a South Sound Logistics Center will NOT be built in Thurston County! 

    You showed the Port of Olympia Commissioners that we want to preserve the rural treasure that is South Thurston County and protect the peace at Millersylvania State Park.  A rail yard with constant noisy train traffic and air pollution doesn't belong here


  • What will happen to the 745 acres owned by the Port of Tacoma, now that the SSLC is off the table?    The Port of Tacoma intends to sell this property, but to whom and for what purpose??  Friends of Rocky Prairie members have made significant efforts to partner with state and federal agencies and conservation organizations to preserve this unique area and its inhabitants.

Among the groups we're working with:

  • WA Dept. of Fish and Wildlife

  • U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

  • The Nature Conservancy

  • Capitol Land Trust 

More to come....   Thanks to everyone for all your encouragement and offers of help. It's difficult to give people specific tasks at this point, but we certainly appreciate the offers. We may need some help with phone trees, research, who knows what else..... and believe us, we'll ask.
