Proposed Rulemaking

Rules under consideration

Description

​The South Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve (South Slough Reserve or Reserve) is proposing a permanent rule change to allow commercial guiding companies to operate within the Reserve through a permitting process overseen by the South Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve’s Management Commission. 

The restriction is designed to protect against unregulated use of the Reserve for commercial gain and establish permit requirements specifically designed to meet the management goals of the South Reserve:

1) Maintain the integrity of the estuary;

2) Protect the estuary from uses, both within and beyond its boundaries, that may alter or affect the ecosystem and its natural dynamic processes; and 

3) Preserve the area for long-term scientific and educational uses.

Permitting commercial guides to offer these experiences, within the scope of the permit requirements, will expand education and outreach opportunities for the public while also protecting the Reserve’s natural and cultural resources and fostering a sentiment of stewardship of public lands.

The South Slough Reserve will hold one all day Rule Advisory Committee (RAC) Meeting in August 2019.  Information will be posted as it becomes available.

Rules Governing the Establishment of Restrictions on the Public Recreation Use of State-Owned Land

The Oregon Department of State Lands (DSL) is conducting rulemaking to restrict the public recreational use of state-owned banks and islands on the Willamette River within Eugene city limits, Lane County, Oregon (OAR 141-088).  

The restrictions are designed to protect against:
(1) the loss of, or damage to property;
(2) the loss of, or damage to natural resources and the environment;
(3) degradation of water quality; and
(4) loss of, or damage to riparian vegetation and wildlife habitat.

To this end, DSL believes all state-owned banks and islands on the Willamette River within Eugene city limits should be closed to:
(1) All uses between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m.; and
(2) The establishment of a campsite at any time; and
(3) Fires at any time.

For the purposes of this section, “campsite” means any place where any bedding, sleeping bag or other material used for bedding purposes, or any stove is placed, established or maintained for the purpose of maintaining a temporary place to live, whether such a place incorporates the use of any tent, lean-to, shack or any other structure.  Excepted from this restriction are Government personnel on official business, public and private employees performing company business, vehicles and persons involved in rescue or emergency activities, and Department authorized persons and adjacent landowners inspecting or maintaining property.


DSL will hold two, possibly three, Rule Advisory Committee (RAC) Meetings starting in June 2019. RAC Committee Meeting locations are:
