Marine Spatial Planning Comment Sessions

You have an opportunity to provide comments on Washington’s framework for marine spatial planning.

A draft report and recommendations for how to better manage uses of our ocean have been developed by the State Ocean Caucus, an interagency team chaired by the Governor’s office.

Attend an open public session. State agency representatives will be on hand to explain the draft report and listen to your opinions. The public comment period is open until October 5th.

This is a great opportunity to speak out on behalf of non consumptive recreational uses.
