Southwest Oregon needs a boost.
Our people need work, our businesses need customers, and our counties and schools need resources to provide the basic services our communities need and deserve.
For over 20 years now, the communities of Southwest Oregon have been experiencing chronic financial distress. Dwindling timber harvests from federal forests, the decline of the wood products industry, and reduced timber receipt payments mean that families in Southwest Oregon are struggling to make ends meet. Cities and counties are making difficult and painful cuts in education and community services.
That is why Southwest Oregon Boosters support:
- The Jordan Cove Energy Project, located on Coos Bay, Oregon, to process, liquefy and transfer natural gas to maritime vessels for export worldwide.
- The 234-mile Pacific Connector pipeline to deliver natural gas to the facility from across the western US and Canada.
