Comments shape future of Washington’s Coast

The Department of Ecology released a Summary of Scoping and Response to Comments for developing a Marine Spatial Plan on Washington’s Coast.

The scoping comment period lasted for 69 days and collected feedback from 45 individuals.

The Washington Sea Grant and the State Ocean Caucus held a series of public workshops to get input from around the state.

Marine spatial planning is an approach adopted by the Washington Legislature to reduce conflicts among ocean uses and balance the benefits humans receive from the ocean while decreasing human-caused environmental damage.

These comments will help define the scope of the project and issues to be analyzed under environmental review. Ecology released a summary document to highlight changes to the scope of the MSP and summarize comments received and responses.
