California Joint Management Plan Review Summary Scoping Document

Report to Sanctuary Advisory Coucils
February 25, 2002

The Summary Scoping Document organizes and synthesizes all the the comments recieved at the scoping meetings and in written format. This document will be used by the Cordell Bank, Gulf of the Farallones, and Monterey Bay Sanctuary Advisory Coucils (SACs) as they prioritize issues to be addressed during the Joint Management Plan Review.

Scoping Meeting Summary

At the onset of Joint Management Plan Review, the National Marine Sanctuary Program (NMSP) will hold public meetings to "scope out" or get input from resource users, interest groups, government agencies, and other members of the public on resource management issues. This input will help define the range of issues that the program needs to address during the management plan review.

From November 28, 2001, to January 17, 2002, scoping meetings will be held in 20 locations throughout the three-sanctuary region, from Gualala in Sonoma County to Cambria in San Luis Obispo County, and one each in Sacramento and Washington, D.C.
