Jordan Cove Hearing and Rally
On Thursday, Jan. 10, the Oregon Department of State Lands (DSL) will hold a hearing about the proposed Jordan Cove LNG (liquefied natural gas) export terminal and associated pipeline. The hearing will take place in North Bend (where the LNG facility would be located) at the Mill Casino (3201 Tremont Ave.), beginning at 5:30 p.m. The DSL hearing will focus on the project’s request for dredge-and-fill permits affecting the Coos Bay estuary and the hundreds of rivers and streams the pipeline will cross.
Before the official hearing, the No LNG coalition, of which Oregon Shores is an active member, will stage a rally. Gather on the sidewalk outside the Mill Casino at 4 p.m. The rally will move inside at 4:30 p.m. to hear speakers.
When you arrive at the actual DSL hearing, you can sign up to speak (two-minute limit), or fill out a comment card. (Incidentally, if you are over 65, you will be allowed to go to the head of the line to speak.)
