Mission:

Building a true partnership between the petrochemical industry and community in La Porte, Morgan’s Point, and Shoreacres.

  • Open, honest dialogue makes plant members aware of what the community expects of them. It helps community members understand what plants do and how they work.
  • Industry shares its operating philosophy with the community, so the community can assess industry performance and work with industry to bring about changes to improve the quality of life in the Bayshore communities.
  • The primary issues we address are environment, safety, health, security, emergency response and communications, and hazardous materials transportation. We also discuss other quality of life issues like the economy and education.

Most common issues of interest: health, safety, environment, emergency management and communications, hazmat transportation, quality of life issues
