Rocky Shores Workshop
OPAC has formed a working group to study these state’s current policies regarding tidepools and other rocky shore areas and consider revisions. Background information on the planning initiative can be found on this OPAC site. Oregon Shores has long argued that the state’s policies were out of date, and that the ones we do have were never fully implemented. These hearings provide individuals, organizations, and local governments and opportunity to weigh in on needed protections for rocky shores.
The meeting will begin with a welcome and introduction followed by a brief informational presentation. The agenda is somewhat informal--questions are invited throughout the session. An opportunity for discussion and additional questions will follow the presentation in a "roundtable-like" discussion format. Laptops will be set up in the meeting room so attendees can submit a public comment or fill out a questionnaire at any point throughout the meeting.
The meetings will continue through mid-March. For the full schedule, go here.
