NOAA is asking for your opinion on their new plan and now would be the perfect time to give it to them. Please tell the officials at NOAA what you think of more regulations on using the country's natural waters. Remember, this is the agency that was going to ignore over a dozen local resolutions opposing a marine sanctuary off the coast of Oregon and force us to except their designation. Please tell them what you think by April 30th, 2017.....Rob T.
Your opportunity to be heard! NOAA's Office of National Marine Sanctuaries ' draft strategy: Our Vision for America’s Treasured Ocean Places: A Five-Year Strategy for the National Marine Sanctuary System
OUR VISION FOR AMERICA'S TREASURED OCEAN PLACES
A Five-Year Strategy for the
National Marine Sanctuary System
The draft document does not catalog everything we do but addresses four principal needs:
- To convey to the American public our priorities over the next five years;
- To enhance focus and inspire our staff;
- To affirm our core values as an organization; and
- To deliver on NOAA’s responsibilities as stewards of nationally significant ocean places.
We are committed to having our team, partners, policy makers and the public recognize the goals set out in the final document and, more importantly, their role in helping to achieve them. We look forward to hearing your thoughts on the draft proposal as we work to finalize it in the coming months.
Once finalized, this document will be our roadmap for the next five years, culminating in 2022 with our 50th anniversary. The draft plan, “Our Vision for America’s Treasured Ocean Places,” is available at http://sanctuaries.noaa.gov/about/five-year-strategy-draft.html.
We are soliciting public input on the draft document through April 30, 2017. While we are not required to solicit public comment under government legislation or law, public involvement in national marine sanctuaries’ management is a longstanding core value that we seek to uphold at every opportunity.
We look forward to receiving your comments (firstname.lastname@example.org) as we work to finalize our strategic plan in the coming months.
