South Portland officials are expected to cast their first vote Wednesday night on a proposal to restrict the loading of crude oil onto marine vessels, and prohibit any related construction. The committee that drafted the proposed ordinance said the loading of crude oil onto marine vessels could increase air pollution and that vapor combustion facilities used to mitigate the pollution would negatively impact the city's waterfront aesthetics. But opponents of the ordinance said it would hurt waterfront development and job creation.
Do you agree with South Portland's proposed restriction on crude oil?
