Public Meetings

National Outer Continental Shelf
Oil and Gas Leasing Program

Public meetings took place across the country using an open-house format, so participants could arrive any time during the scheduled meeting time. At the meetings, participants were able to ask questions, share information, talk with our team members one-on-one, and learn more about the National OCS Program. We also encouraged participants to submit written comments to inform BOEM of specific issues, impacting factors, environmental resources, alternatives to the proposed action, and mitigation measures to consider in its analyses.

For those who were unable to attend one of the scheduled meetings, BOEM is offering a Virtual Meeting Room where participants can visit the same stations that were available at the open house meetings. There they are able to review and download the same handouts and posters offered at the meetings.
