Channel Modification Scoping Meeting At Library Wednesday


An open house scoping meeting to evaluate the effects of the Oregon International Port of Coos Bay’s proposed modifications to the Federal Navigation Channel is Wednesday in Coos Bay. The project is made up of actions to improve navigation efficiency, reduce transportation costs and facilitate the shipping industry’s transition to larger vessels.
 
Scoping is an opportunity to collect information from the public and stakeholders on issues to consider in the analysis of potential environmental effects. The open house public scoping meeting is Wednesday, September 13th to talk with Corps staff about the EIS process and to receive written input. Port staff will display information about their proposal and be available for discussion. The meeting will be held from 3 to 7:30pm in the Coos Bay Library. The public is welcome to drop by anytime.
 
Written scoping input is welcome through the comment period by mail or by email. The public is encouraged to visit the Corps’ channel modification EIS website to learn more and how to submit scoping input: http://www.nwp.usace.army.mil/coast/coos-bay/channel-modification/
