Community Development in Energy Host Communities
Rapid expansion of the oil and gas extraction and transmission industry in Ohio and other parts of the U.S. has brought prosperity and wealth to many communities and residents, increased revenue to local government, and lowered energy prices for consumers. But this expansion has often strained local infrastructure and services and the ability to maintain them and caused environmental damage, while many residents do not receive direct benefits. How can communities maximize the advantages while minimizing problems? What information and research will assist local decision-making?
