Public Hearings & Scoping Meetings

How They Work

Public hearings are considered an important step in the management process because they give stakeholders an opportunity to,

  • Learn more about proposed actions and management measures being considered by the Council;
  • Speak with Council members and staff about the draft amendments being considered, and
  • Give formal public comment on the record about their ideas and suggestions on the proposed measures.
