The following is a press release from the City of Coos Bay regarding the upcoming Community Enhancement Plan Open Houses to be held around the County.
Community Enhancement Plan Open Houses July 9th – 11th
The Community Enhancement Plan (CEP) Work Group will hold three Open House sessions to answer questions and hear feedback from citizens as follows:
- Thursday, July 9th, 6pm-8pm, Blossom Gulch Elementary School Cafeteria, Coos Bay
- Friday, July 10th, 11am-1pm, The Barn in Bandon City Park, Bandon
- Saturday, July 11th, 10am-noon, Oaks Pavilion at Coos County Fairgrounds, Myrtle Point
Representatives from the South Coast Community Foundation, the Waterfront Development Partnership and the CEP Work Group will be available to discuss their plans with attendees. Handouts summarizing the activities of these three entities will also be provided to the public.
The format of these meetings allows citizens to discuss issues with elected officials and staff on a one-on-one basis. Citizens interested in providing public testimony will be able to do so when the governing bodies meet at a later date to hold public hearings on these proposals.
All meeting minutes, handouts, and draft agreements related to the Community Enhancement Plan are available on the Port of Coos Bay’s website under the “Community Partnerships” tab: www.portofcoosbay.com
For those who cannot attend the open house sessions, an email address has been created for those who prefer to provide written feedback to the CEP Work Group: email@example.com
The Community Enhancement Plan Work Group will meet next on Monday, July 20th at 1pm at the Coos Bay City Council Chambers to review citizen feedback. The next step will be to present the CEP to the governing bodies for approval, including the City of Coos Bay, the City of North Bend, Coos County, and the Oregon International Port of Coos Bay. For more information contact Councilor Jennifer Groth at 541-217-8293 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please take this opportunity to attend one of the above sessions with any questions you may have and to give feedback on this potential opportunity for our community.
