January marks the kick-off for Smith Rock State Park Master Plan Public Comment period. It’s been a long time–1991 was the last year you had a chance for input, and a lot has changed since then.
The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD) has 2 dates and 2 locations for Meeting 1 of the first round of public meetings to determine the future of the park.
Meeting 1 will go into detail on how the planning process will guide the vision and management of the park. It’s also a listening session for OPRD to hear what local residents and park stakeholders value.
