BOEM will present the details of a draft Federal Register notice titled, Commercial Leasing for Wind Power on the Outer Continental Shelf Offshore South Carolina - Call for Information and Nominations (Call). BOEM intends to gather information from the task force to inform BOEM's future decisions in delineating lease areas for wind energy development offshore South Carolina. During the meeting the government agencies will discuss the offshore renewable energy planning process and present survey information collected from recent efforts.

Following the Task Force discussion, BOEM intends to publish the Call for public comment. The Call will request comments and information from interested and affected parties about site conditions, resources, and multiple uses in close proximity to, or within, the Call Areas that would be relevant to BOEM's review of any nominations submitted and/or to BOEM's subsequent decision to offer the Call Areas or portions of the Call areas for commercial wind leasing.

The session will begin at 12:00 p.m. and is expected to end by 4:30 p.m. A public question and answer session will be held upon its conclusion.

For awareness, the BOEM South Carolina Renewable Energy Task Force is an intergovernmental group. Task force members include Federal officials and elected state, local, and tribal officials, or designated member representatives.
