Fish Restoration and Enhancement Board to meet in Salem

Jan. 25, 2013

SALEM, Ore. — The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife’s Fish Restoration and Enhancement Board will meet on Thursday, Jan. 31 and Friday, Feb. 1 in Salem.

On Thursday, the Board will meet from 1-5 p.m. at the ODFW Headquarters building at 3406 Cherry Ave. NE. The day’s agenda includes conversations with representatives of several ODFW program areas to discuss more efficient funding of ODFW-sponsored projects.

The meeting will reconvene on Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Best Western Mill Creek Inn, 3125 Ryan Dr. SE, in Salem. The Board will consider several project proposals for funding.

Meetings on both days are open to the public, and there will be an opportunity for public comment.

Reasonable accommodations will be provided as needed for individuals requesting assistive hearing devices, sign language interpreters or large-print materials. Individuals needing these types of accommodations may call the Information and Education Division at 800-720-6339 or 503-947-6002 at least 24 hours in advance of the meeting.

Created by the Oregon Legislature in 1989, the Fish Restoration and Enhancement Program is funded by a surcharge on sport and commercial fishing licenses and commercial poundage fees. The program’s seven-member citizen board reviews fish restoration and enhancement project proposals and makes funding recommendations to the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission.
