There are currently multiple available positions on the Rocky Shores Working Group. 

We encourage all qualified candidates to apply.


The Oregon Ocean Policy Advisory Council (OPAC), in accordance with its duties authorized in ORS 196.448 through ORS 196.453, has initiated a review of the Oregon Territorial Sea Plan (TSP) with the intention of recommending amendments to Part Three: Rocky Shores Management Strategy.  OPAC will submit any recommendations for amending the TSP to the Land Conservation and Development Commission, which is responsible for adopting amendments to the TSP through a rule making process. 

OPAC has established a Territorial Sea Plan Work Group (TSPWG) as a technical advisory committee to conduct the review and to draft amendment recommendations for its consideration.  The Oregon Department of Land Conservation and Development (DLCD) will assist OPAC as required under ORS 196.435, and will administer the TSPWG meetings.

The Territorial Sea Plan (TSP) Working Group was originally chartered at the May 22, 2008 OPAC meeting, and reestablished at the December 3rd 2015 meeting.  The working group was charged with developing a set of recommendations for updates to the Territorial Sea Plan, which will be specifically focused on making recommendations regarding updates to the Rocky Shores Management Strategy. 

Working Group chair: Charlie Plybon

Working Group members: Chris Castelli, Laurel Hillmann, David Fox, Andy Lanier, Kris Wall, Scott McMullen
