ROSEBURG, Ore. (AP) - Douglas County commissioners have refused to hear an appeal of a permit for a pipeline through southwestern Oregon to carry natural gas to a facility in Coos Bay for export to Asia.

The News-Review (http://bit.ly/1ktKpBh ) reports that landowners objecting to the Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline crossing their property say they will take the issue to the state Land Use Board of Appeals.

The planning commission had approved the coastal zone management permit last February.

Commissioner Susan Morgan said no matter what they decided, the permit would be appealed to the land use board.
