If you haven’t yet had a chance, comments will be accepted on the plan through Monday, December 1, 2014. This reflects a 30-day comment period from October 22, the date of the first public meeting.

Next Steps

Planning staff will continue to revise the Draft Plan based on comments from this round of meetings. We hope to be taking the plan to the Oregon State Park Commission for approval in February 2015. Upon approval, planning staff will work with counties in the Gorge to make sure the plan is compatible with land use plans.
