We have changed the date of these meetings from October 15 & 16 to Oct 22 & 23 due to a scheduling conflict. Please note the new dates for the Gorge Oregon State Parks Plan Advisory Committee Meeting on the post below.
The times and locations for these meetings have not changed. Please contact us if you have any questions.
The fourth set of public meetings in the Gorge state park planning process are scheduled for October 22 and October 23, 2014. OPRD staff will present the draft comprehensive plan for state parks in the Gorge and listen to public comment at these meetings. The draft plan includes summaries of the assessments, public input, values and desired benefits of the parks, revised park proposals, phasing and recommendations for the future vision and management of state parks in the Columbia River Gorge. Public discussion at these meetings will allow us to share specific opportunities and challenges at each of our state park sites in addition to hearing what you think about the plans. Public engagement and discussion at this meeting is especially important to the success of the planning effort.
The draft plan will be available online at www.gorgeparksplan.com for review on October 8th, one week prior to the public meetings so please come to the meetings with your questions.You can also review past public meeting materials, including existing conditions, guiding values, and planning proposals on the website. After the meetings there will be a 30 day comment period on the plan and you are welcome to tell us what you think right here on the blog.
