Five public hearings will be held between Jan. 7 and 15 to hear comment on the removal-fill permit application for the proposed Jordan Cove Energy Project.
In order to protect Oregon's water resources, the state removal-fill law requires projects that remove or fill material in wetlands or waterways to obtain a permit from the Department of State Lands (DSL). Input received during the permit application public comment period is used to determine what additional information the applicant may be required to provide, what issues the applicant may need to address, and ultimately to inform the Department’s permit decision.
DSL will hold five public hearings to hear comment on the application:
• Klamath Falls: Monday, Jan. 7 from 5:30-8 p.m. at Klamath Falls Community College, Commons Building, 7390 S 6th St.
• Central Point: Tuesday, Jan. 8 from 5:30-8 p.m. at the Jackson County Expo, Padgham Pavilion, 1 Peninger Rd.
• Canyonville: Wednesday, Jan. 9 from 5:30-8 p.m. at Seven Feathers Casino, Cedar Room, 146 Chief Miwaleta Ln.
• North Bend: Thursday, Jan. 10 from 5:30-8 p.m. at the Mill Casino, Salmon Room West, 3201 Tremont Ave.
• Salem: Tuesday, Jan. 15 from 5:30-8 p.m. at the Department of Veterans' Affairs, Auditorium, 700 Summer St NE. Please note this is a new location, directly across the street from the original DSL location.
Doors will open at 5:15 p.m. for comment signup to begin. DSL asks that all attendees contribute to a respectful setting and a productive public comment hearing by following the hearing ground rules and comment procedures available on the DSL website: https://www.oregon.gov/dsl/WW/Pages/jordancove.aspx
Comments may also be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org, by postal mail, or through a comment form. Full comment submittal information is available on the DSL website.
The 60-day public review and comment period began Dec. 6, 2018, and ends Feb. 3, 2019, at 5 p.m. All comments must be received by this date and time to be considered.
The complete application is available for download on the DSL website. Paper copies of the application are also available at the Coos Bay Public Library, the Sutherlin Library, the Winston Branch Library, the Jackson County Library, and the Klamath County Library.
