Public Meeting III. Planning Concepts

Image

The third set of public meetings in the Gorge state park planning process are scheduled for April 30 and May 1, 2014. We have pushed the meetings back a month to allow OPRD more time to coordinate the plan recommendations with partner agencies, including the Forest Service, Counties, and the Gorge commission.

Park staff will present planning concepts  for state parks in the Gorge and listen to public comment at these meetings. Planning concepts will include strategies for park management units in the Gorge and specific strategies and site plans for our most significant park properties.  Public discussion at these meetings will allow us to clarify the specific opportunities and challenges at each of our significant state park sites. Public engagement and discussion at this meeting is especially important to the success of the planning effort.

Planning proposals will be available online at www.gorgeparksplan.com  for review on April 25, one week prior to the public meetings. You can also visit Gorgeparksplan.com to review past public meeting materials including existing conditions and guiding values.
