Save the Date: Open Ocean Meetings June 4

These public engagement opportunities will happen before the Trustee Council’s public meetings on June 5 and 6.

The Open Ocean Trustee Implementation Group is planning to hold public engagement opportunities on June 4, 2019, the day before the Trustee Council’s June 5 workshop and June 6 public meeting in Pensacola, Florida. Please save the date for June 4 starting in the afternoon.

The first engagement opportunity will be held the afternoon of June 4 at Pensacola City Hall to present the recently released Monitoring and Adaptive Management Strategy. We’ll also ask for input from attendees on development of our Open Ocean monitoring and adaptive management near and long-term information needs.

  • Date: June 4, 2019.
  • Time: 3:30 - 5:00 p.m.
  • Location: Pensacola City Hall, Vince Whibbs Room, 222 West Main St., Pensacola, FL.

The second is for the public to learn more about the recently released Open Ocean Draft Restoration Plan 2. The Open Ocean Trustees will hold an in-person public meeting, also at Pensacola City Hall.

  • Date: June 4, 2019
  • Time: 5:30 - 6:15 p.m. Open House
    6:30 - 8:30 p.m. Meeting
  • Location: Pensacola City Hall, Hagler/Mason Room
    222 W Main St., Pensacola, FL 32502

Community members and stakeholders can comment on the Draft Restoration Plan 2 at this public meeting, during two public webinars we're holding the following week on June 11 and 13, by mail or via our online portal. Public comment will be accepted until July 1, 2019.

We worked to ensure these opportunities will be around the same days and in the same location of the Trustee Council’s meetings, and we hope you can take time to attend.
