The comment period for the Public Draft of the Coastal Multi-Species Conservation and Management Plan (CMP) ended on March 10. ODFW appreciates the thoughtful comments provided during the comment period. Comments received during the comment period are being used to revise and update the CMP. ODFW intends to present the resulting revised draft to the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission at its April 25 meeting in North Bend. The revised Commission Draft of the CMP will be available for review and comment approximately two weeks prior to the Commission meeting; it will be posted on the project website: http://www.dfw.state.or.us/fish/CRP/coastal_multispecies.asp. The Commission will take public comments about the revised draft but will not be making any final decisions about the CMP on April 25. It is tentatively anticipated that decisions about the CMP will be made at the Commission’s June 5 – 6 meeting in Salem.
For questions about the CMP or Commission meeting, please contact Kevin Goodson at 503-947-6250.
