Backers and opponents of a natural gas pipeline and export facility in Southern Oregon have found rare common ground after a hotel in Medford canceled their reservations for dueling open houses planned on the same evening.

Jordan Cove LNG, which is proposing the 232-mile-long pipeline, planned to get information out to the public, take comments and answer questions during an open house March 23 at the Ramada Medford Hotel and Conference Center.
