Request for Public Input on OPC 2010 Evaluation


Dear California Ocean and Coastal Community,



During its first five years, the OPC has made significant contributions to improve ocean and coastal management.  As the OPC begins preparing to develop its next strategic plan, the OPC is taking this opportunity to evaluate its performance to date against the goals of the California Ocean Protection Act (COPA) and to identify opportunities to improve institutional processes, address the adequacy of policies and laws, and to integrate science into decision-making.

OPC has selected the NewPoint Group to conduct the evaluation and draft a report on the evaluation’s findings.  As part of this process, OPC is very interested in receiving feedback from its partners and stakeholders. An online survey has been created to provide the public with an opportunity to give feedback on OPC’s past  performance and recommendations for OPC’s future activities.

The online survey will open until July 9, 2010 and can be accessed here along with more details on the evaluation.

The  California Ocean Protection Act and the OPC 2006 Strategic Plan can be found at Council Documents.

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your valuable feedback.

Lester Snow
California Ocean Protection Council
