An Oregon judge has ruled in favor of the Oregon International Port of Coos Bay’s permit for the development of an access channel and multi-purpose vessel slip on the North Spit of lower Coos Bay. Following the decision, the Oregon Department of State Lands issued a final order this week, affirming its decision to approve the Port’s removal-fill permit for the Oregon Gateway Marine Terminal. Port Commission President David Kronsteiner called the ruling a victory. He added the administrative law judge rejected every single argument that Coos Waterkeeper, the Sierra Club and other groups have presented as challenges to this permit. The Port submitted its application for the marine terminal multi-berth slip in 2007.
