Description
 
Community Advisory Panels (CAP) are a central feature of the U.S. chemical industry’s public outreach efforts. CAP have fostered dialogue between chem. facilities and neighboring communities; however, they are also frequently criticized for being merely p.r. vehicles for the chem. industry. This paper investigates the performance of CAP and highlights sources of public discontent with the dialogues. Drawing on observations of CAP meetings in St. Charles Parish, LA, the paper assesses CAP performance with respect to 4 key goals: building relationships between chem. facilities and nearby communities; educating residents about plant oper.; informing facility managers about community concerns; and facilitating improvements in environ. performance.
