Important Meeting

On Wednesday January 6th, the Department of State Lands will be holding an important public meeting regarding permits needed for the Jordan Cove Pacific Connector LNG export project. Have your voice heard, tell DSL to protect our public lands and deny project permits!
Department of State Lands (DSL) Public Meeting on Jan. 6th in Medford 
DSL is one of the main state agencies that can shut down this project by denying necessary ‘removal-fill’ permits to the Jordan Cove Energy Project.  DSL can deny permits for projects if they interfere with the public use of waterways for things like fishing and recreation, if they are inconsistent with the conservation of state waterways, or if they interfere with public health and safety. Click here to read more about these permits and how to tailor your letters and testimony towards issues the Department can consider.
DSL will hold two public meetings next week in Medford and North Bend. The meetings will be Open House style with the opportunity to talk to DSL representatives and submit your public comments for the record. It's important that when giving comments we stay calm, respectful and stay on topic. For more about DSL's authority and talking points on why they should deny project permits, download the comment guide here. DSL recommends turning out in stages due to limited space.

January 6: Medford RSVP Here
Come early for a community rally out in front of the Rogue Regency along Crater Lake Hwy from 3-4pm before the meeting. Bring your signs and wear red!
