Press Release, City of Vallejo, May 24, 2019

VMT WITHDRAWS APPEAL OF VMT/ORCEM PROJECT – MAY 30 PUBLIC HEARING CANCELLED

VALLEJO, CA – Vallejo Marine Terminal, LLC. (VMT) delivered formal notice to the City of Vallejo this afternoon that it has elected to withdraw its appeal of the Planning Commission’s 2017 denial of the VMT-Orcem Project.

The public hearing at the City Council previously scheduled for May 30, 2019 has been cancelled.

VMT applied on September 5, 2013 for a cement processing plant project on ~30 acres at the former General Mills factory. The original project was denied a major use permit by the Vallejo Planning Commission on February 27, 2017 due to concerns over environmental and quality of life impacts.

VMT stated in its May 24, 2019 withdraw letter that it no longer supports the project. As real property holder, VMT’s withdraw of the appeal effectively terminates the proposed project.
