Abstract or Summary
  • Selecting locations for large energy facilities represents a land use dilemma: The beneficiaries of such facilities often are not the ones to suffer from adverse local impacts. As a result, it is not uncommon for local opposition groups to form in response to such proposals, and although opportunities for public participation are built into the process, questions remain as to their effectiveness. I find that previous experiences regarding industrial development proposals in Coos Bay fostered mistrust of local decision makers as well as a sense of procedural injustice among opponents of such projects and established a network of existing mobilizing structures in which LNG opponents were able to mobilize. I also find that the change from import to export helped to facilitate the mobilization of opposition among landowners along the pipeline. Finally, supporters mobilized in support of the project, forming a strategic alliance with Veresen, the company that owns Jordan Cove, and as a reaction to opponents dominating public discussions about the project. The purpose of this research is to identify areas of improvement for effective public participation processes surrounding large-scale, coastal, industrial development through an in-depth case study of the Jordan Cove energy project.
