Be part of helping the planning efforts for updating the Coos Bay Estuary Management Plan (CBEMP). Come join us to learn about the status of the CBEMP, suggested areas of improvement to it based on community stakeholder suggestions, as well as environmental and socio-economic conditions of the Coos estuary and surrounding communities. We will ask you to take a survey to evaluate proposed recommendations and suggested areas of improvement to the current CBEMP. All community input, including the survey responses, will be included in a final report and presented to the Coos County Board of Commissioners.

The Partnership for Coastal Watershed (PCW), in collaboration with Coos County and South Slough Reserve, recently received $246,000 from the National Estuarine Research Reserve System’s (NERRS) Science Collaborative Program to assist the County’s Planning Department to update environmental and community data related to the Coos Bay Estuary Management Plan (CBEMP). Some parts of the CBEMP have not been updated for 40 years.

The Coos Estuary Land Use Analysis Project (Project) will provide the County with up to date information (e.g., current land ownerships, designated land uses, natural hazards) to improve the CBEMP’s permitting and resource protection processes; data that will also be critical to the County’s future revision of the CBEMP. The project will also assemble and articulate land use recommendations as proposed by local stakeholders from economic development, natural resource protection, and socio-cultural perspectives. The Project creates no financial burden to Coos County, and does not make land use decisions or advocate for or against any particular project.
