2019 Task Force Meeting Seven

BOEM and the State of Oregon will convene a Task Force meeting on Friday, September 27, 2019 from 8:00 am – 12:30 pm (with public input to follow). The meeting will be held in Room 1-A at the Portland State Office Building located at 800 NE Oregon St in Portland, OR.

BOEM and the State of Oregon are resuming planning for ocean renewable energy, and the BOEM Oregon Intergovernmental Renewable Energy Task Force is an important component in the process. In addition to providing an update on BOEM activities and an overview of the offshore renewable energy leasing process, BOEM and the State are engaging with the Task Force to begin offshore wind planning in southern Oregon where the wind resource is the strongest in the State. Members of the public are invited to attend.

As a reminder, the Task Force is an intergovernmental group. Task Force members include federal, state and local agencies, tribal governments, and/or designated member representatives. Members of the public are invited to listen, and there will be an opportunity for a public question and answer session after the meeting.
