In January, the Oregon Department of State Lands (DSL) is hosting public hearings about Jordan Cove LNG and the Pacific Connector Pipeline in Klamath Falls, Jackson County, Canyonville, North Bend, and Salem.
DSL is taking public comment on one of the state permits that, if denied, would stop the Jordan Cove LNG even if the Federal Government approves the project. The permit looks at water and safety impacts.
Visit Write Comments for instructions on this specific permit.
At 4:00 PM the rally will begin on the public sidewalk across the street from the Mill Casino (3201 Tremont Ave., North Bend, Ore.)
At 4:30 we will move inside to the Hazel-Willow Rm in the Casino where we will have snacks, FREE t-shirts, speakers talking about the impacts of the project, and an info station to help you write your comments. We will have comment templates, information about the impacts of Jordan Cove, and people to help you write comments at the info table between 4:30 and 5:30 PM. Signs and banners will have to be left outside or in vehicles, per Casino rules.
At 5:15 PM Sign-up to deliver testimony at the hearing will begin. If you are writing testimony at home, please bring a copy to submit to DSL in the case they run out of time and you do not get to speak. Testimony should be less than 2 minutes. ANYONE CAN AND SHOULD SIGN UP TO TESTIFY! We will be doing our best to ensure those most impacted by the project testify earlier.
At 5:30 PM the hearing will start in the Salmon Rm. at the Mill Casino. No signs or posters are allowed inside the hearing room, or the Mill Casino in general, so please WEAR RED to show your opposition to Jordan Cove, and leave your signs outside.
At 8:00 PM sharp DSL will close the hearing, even if there are people still signed up to speak.
