The next phase of the state’s drawn-out “site designation” process, part of the new Rocky Habitat Management Strategy, is upon us. The Department of Land Conservation and Development is hosting three virtual workshops focused on proposals from community groups seeking protective Marine Conservation Area (MCA) designations for five sites.  The workshops take place April 27-29.

The first of the workshops, on Wednesday, April 27, will deal with MCA proposals for Fogarty Creek, 8:30 a.m.-noon, and Cape Foulweather, 1-4:30 p.m. 

These proposals have been slowly advancing through the process over the past two years.  The workshops provide the groups and individuals supporting these site designations with an opportunity to hone the proposals for final consideration. Once past this hurdle, the sites will be considered for final approval by the Ocean Policy Advisory Council later this year.

Agendas, workshop materials, and registration information can be found on the Oregon Ocean Information website, https://www.oregonocean.info/index.php/further-evaluation-workshops.
