A very, very important meeting for Oregon Coast residents and visitors

Offshore Wind Farms

Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) invites public comment at Newport meeting

(NEWPORT, OR) – Representatives of the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) will be in Newport on Wednesday, June 15th to hear public comment on the areas identified for offshore wind energy development off Oregon’s southern and central coast.

The public meeting will be held at the Best Western Agate Beach Hotel, 3019 North Coast Highway (101) from 8am – Noon. The meeting will be facilitated by Heather Mann, executive director of Midwater Trawlers Cooperative. Any individual who wishes to share a comment for the public record is encouraged to attend.

There have been a number of meetings – including among local residents and local governments – who contend that BOEM is rushing too much and too fast to make a wall of unsightly wind generators off our coasts.  The economy of coastal Oregon relies very much on the fishing industry as well as tourism.  They want to see a beautiful ocean – not a wall of rotating fans.

Please attend the meeting at Best Western Agate Beach, 8am to to Noon, on Wednesday, June 15th at 3019 North Coast Highway.  Our ocean views and fishing industry are worth saving.

BOEM is part of the U.S. Department of Interior and is the agency that manages all offshore development.
