State Land Board Meeting Summary - July 22, 2011
Action Agenda
At a special meeting held at the North Bend Public Library, the Land Board approved a request to initiate rulemaking to amend the rules for granting easements on Trust and Non-Trust lands. The rulemaking is related to Senate Bill 600, which establishes additional waterway leasing exemptions for riprap, drainage districts, city and county road maintenance, and voluntary habitat restoration projects.

Informational Agenda
Jim Young, Coos District Forester with the Department of Forestry, provided an overview of the draft Elliott State Forest Management Plan. The board took public comment on the plan, which included four people testifying in support of the plan, and seven who were opposed to the plan. The Land Board expects to make a decision at their October 11, 2011 public meeting in Salem.
