Public Meeting Notice
The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD) will seek advice on improving management of rocky shore intertidal areas in Brookings area state parks at a December 16 public meeting in Brookings, Oregon. The meeting will be from 2-4 p.m. at the Brookings Rest Area Meeting Room, across from Harris Beach State Park at: 1655 Hwy 101 N, Brookings, Oregon.
OPRD will introduce a draft of a Rocky Shore Areas Site Management Plan for the area—a plan focusing on management improvements at McVay Rock, Harris Beach, and Samuel H. Boardman state parks.
Proposed management changes in the plan do not include any new rules or designations. OPRD will use public comments from the meeting to help finalize a plan that guides minor facility improvements, enhances on-site interpretation, and outlines ways to manage recreation in harmony with protecting natural resources. No decisions will be made at the meeting.
