This project would result in more clearcuts in Oregon’s coastal and interior forests, impacting breeding habitat for endangered species like the Marbled Murrelet and Spotted Owl. It also poses a serious threat to important migratory bird habitats in Coos Bay and vicinity.
There is broad opposition to this project from landowners and businesses to conservation groups concerned with irreversible impacts to climate, water, and ecology. The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality has already denied an important permit for this project to move forward.
Right now, the Oregon Department of Land Conservation and Development (DLCD) is reviewing the project to determine whether it is consistent with Oregon’s requirements to protect coastal resources via the Coastal Zone Management Act and is accepting public comment on this process until September 21.
Please contact the Department of Land Conservation and Development (DLCD) and ask them to deny the Coastal Zone Management Act certification for this project. We encourage you to personalize this editable letter.Learn More
