Abstract:

This project provided support for local governments to obtain necessary information to modernize and revise the Coos Bay estuary management plan. Through an integrative assessment, the project team leveraged knowledge from community members, synthesized and compiled existing information, and applied a triple bottom line lens (economic, social, and environmental) to portray current conditions and uses in the estuary, and generate options and recommendations for local governments to improve their estuarine and shoreland management.

This integrated assessment project was funded by NOAA through the National Estuarine Research Reserve System Science Collaborative to evaluate options for action. It did not produce any new data.

Purpose:

The Coos Bay estuary is one of Oregon’s most important ecological resources, valued by surrounding communities for its abundant, diverse natural resources and economic and cultural significance. However, modern management of the estuary and its surrounding shorelands is based on local land use plans developed in the 1970s, a time when timber export and a vision of an industrialized waterfront predominated. The surrounding community now agrees that land use regulations need to evolve to reflect today’s economic and social drivers centered around tourism and retirement services, while proactively addressing environmental changes and protecting natural resources.
