Meeting Summaries

Thank you to those who attended the public meetings in February to kick-start the SouthBev planning process. We heard that, among many other things, you value the beautiful scenery, quality natural resources, and extensive public access to the beach that Oregon’s Central Coast provides. Please read through the meeting summaries posted below to see the full range of thoughtful feedback shared at the meetings.

Next Steps

Planning staff will be finishing up assessments and identifying initial opportunities and constraints for the two management units between now and the next public meeting. At that meeting, we will present an overview of the existing conditions and ask you to weigh in on park needs and opportunities going forward. In the meantime, if you haven’t already, please take our survey and let us know what you value about state parks on the Central Coast.
