The Oregon Coastal Management Program (OCMP) is developing an Estuary Resilience Action Plan for Lincoln County. The public is invited to participate in listening sessions to guide the development of a coastal hazards vulnerability assessment and help the state determine which coastal hazards are most concerning to the community and which assets, resources, and populations are most vulnerable.

The project’s goal is to help communities understand their vulnerabilities to various coastal hazards and identify strategies for coordinating locally led responses to increase resilience. Download this flyer to share this opportunity with your community.
