Draft Plan Revisions


The South Beach & Beverly Beach Management Units Plan is nearing completion!

Following the final round of public meetings in May, OPRD received a number of comments on the proposals in the Draft Plan. OPRD has reviewed these comments along with others received throughout the planning process and has made revisions to the Draft Plan based on the comments received. A full list of revisions is posted below. The Final Draft Plan is tentatively scheduled to go before the Oregon State Parks Commission for approval in February 2018. If approved, it will need to go through a land use compatibility review by affected cities and counties before it can be adopted into state rule.



The commission meeting date and revised Final Draft Master Plan will be posted on the website in early 2018.
