The Draft OPRD Columbia River Gorge Management Units Plan was unanimously approved by the Oregon Parks and Recreation Commission on February 11, 2015.
Planning staff will now be working with counties in the Gorge for land use compatibility approval throughout 2015. Following this OPRD will apply to formally adopt the plan as state rule.
Additionally, OPRD will be developing detailed site plans for projects identified and prioritized in the plan as a next step in moving forward with these improvements and identifying potential funding. We will be posting information about these plans on the blog as it becomes available.

The Draft Gorge Management Units Plan was presented to the public, partners, and staff in October 2014. The resulting comments have been incorporated into the plan for the Oregon Parks and Recreation Commission’s approval and adoption at the upcoming meeting February 11, 2015. If approved, planning staff will seek land use approvals with Gorge counties in early 2015 and then later this year formally apply to adopt the plan as state rule.
