Public Meetings II Summary
Thank you to all who attended the recent public meetings in August to share your input on existing condition assessments and opportunities in the parks. While attendance was low, we had a lively discussion that reinforced the values we heard from our first round of public meetings and survey results.
We also identified and clarified key opportunities going forward. Some of the themes addressed during the meetings included education and interpretation, increased overnight camping opportunities on the coast, and balancing public access to beaches with natural resource protection and a high quality experience for visitors. Please read through the notes posted below to see more of the feedback shared at the meetings.
If you weren’t able to attend the meetings but would like to share your thoughts about parks in the South Beach or Beverly Beach Management Units, you can contact us directly or respond to this post below. You can also comment on the map and let us know what you would like to see proposed for a particular park or parks.
Planning staff are now working on identifying specific proposals for future management and development of each park, taking into account the public feedback we have received so far. We will present these proposals at the next set of meetings, tentatively planned for early 2016. More information about these meetings will be posted soon.
