Boost Southern Oregon provides a voice for supporters of a strong Southern Oregon economy. This project will provide a boost that attracts more businesses and good-paying jobs, making Southern Oregon a better place to live, work and raise a family.
Boost Southwest Oregon was founded in 2013 by a group of Coos County citizens, community leaders, small local businesses, organizations, and elected officials. As people across Southern Oregon have endorsed and taken action, the organization is officially relaunching this June to better reflect our growing membership and expansion.
A small, but vocal opposition to the project are spreading fear and misinformation to keep the project from moving forward, but with your help, we will prevail and bring the biggest economic boost our region has seen in decades.
Increasing access to affordable natural gas in Southern Oregon will help attract more industry and big business to our region, creating more good-paying jobs with benefits.The positive impact of this project will ripple across our local economy. As more good-paying jobs are created, more money will be spent in our local small businesses, restaurants, and hotels. And as these businesses do better, even more good, local jobs will be created.
Portland always seems to get the lion's share of good economic development projects. Now it's our turn to get our fair share. The Jordan Cove LNG and Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline provide Southern Oregon with a lifeline that we can use to move our communities back in the right direction.
