Community team meetings to discuss potential marine reserve sites
 
January 14, 2010

 

NEWPORT – The first marine reserves community team meetings to discuss potential marine reserves sites at Cape Falcon, Cascade Head, and Cape Perpetua will be held the last week of January.

The purpose of the community teams is to refine and make final recommendations for the sites to the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife by October 2010. Team members will also work in collaboration with ODFW staff to assist with biological and social/economic assessments and to develop site-specific marine reserve goals consistent with the Ocean Policy Advisory Council’s marine reserve definition and goals.

The community teams are made up of two representatives from each of eight groups: local government, recreational fishing, commercial fishing, non-fishing industry, recreationalists, conservation, coastal watershed council, and marine and avian scientists. The composition of the groups is prescribed by Oregon House Bill 3013 (2009).

The meeting for Cape Perpetua will be Tuesday, Jan. 26 from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the Yachats Commons, 441 Hwy 101, Yachats.

The meeting for Cape Falcon will be Wednesday, Jan. 27 from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the Oregon Department of Forestry Conference Room, 5005 Third St., Tillamook

The meeting for Cascade Head will be Thursday, Jan. 28, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the Kiawanda Community Center, 34600 Cape Kiwanda Drive, Pacific City.

These meetings are open to the public. Further information, including the agendas, are posted on the Oregon Marine Reserve website: www.oregonmarinereserves.net.
