"The intent of the Coos Estuary Land Use Analysis is to assist the Coos County Planning Department to update environmental and community data related to the Coos Bay Estuary Management Plan. To that end, this project comprises three main pieces: The Coos Estuary Map Atlas, Focus Group Recommendations, and Scenario Options. The Coos Estuary Map Atlas and the Communities, Lands & Waterways: Data Source are two information products that will help the County move forward with updating its resource inventories. Both reveal current and potential development and conservation areas within the boundaries of the CBEMP [Coos Bay Estuary Management Plan] and reflect current and likely future conditions in the estuary. Taken together, these products will help Coos County modernize the inventories portion of the CBEMP."
