Grover Fugate Marine Spatial Planning For Ocean Resources

  1. 1.  Marine Spatial Planning For  Ocean Resources
  2. 2. Plan and Policies A plan and policies give  context to decisions and  places boundaries for  utilization of areas,  which leads to  predictability for all in  decision making.
  3. 3. Ocean SAMP Document Ecology of the Area Cultural and Historical Resources Fisheries Resources Recreation and Tourism Marine Transportation Marine Infrastructure Offshore Development Renewable Energy Future Uses Climate Change Policies of the Ocean SAMP
  4. 4. Areas of Particular Concern Areas of Particular Concern (APCs) have been  designated in state waters through the Ocean SAMP  process with the goal of protecting areas that have  high conservation value, cultural and historic value, or  human use value from Large‐Scale Offshore  Development.
  5. 5. Areas Designated for Preservation Areas Designated for Preservation are designated in  the Ocean SAMP area in state waters for the purpose  of preserving them for their ecological value.6 Areas  Designated for Preservation were identified by  reviewing habitat and other ecological data and  findings that have resulted from the Ocean SAMP  process. Areas Designated for Preservation are  afforded additional protection than Areas of Particular  Concern because of scientific evidence indicating that  Large‐Scale Offshore Development in these areas may  result in significant habitat loss. 
  6. 6. Current Status of OSAMP NOAA APROVED AS A STATE PLAN ADMENDMENT  MAY 11,2011 NOAA APROVED GLD FOR FEDERAL CONSISTENCY  SEPTEMBER 2011 FERC ADOPTION FOR RENEWABLE PERMITTING  SEPTEMBER 28, 2011 BOEM INCLUSION INTO LEASE PROCESS AND EIS ‐ ONGOING FERC MOU‐ ONGOING 4 AMENDMENTS TO PLAN RESEARCH STUDIES‐ONGOING RESEARCH AGENDA‐ONGOING EXPANSION OF GLD ACTIVITES‐ONGOING  REGULATORY MEETINGS OF FAB AND HAB ONGOING
  7. 7. Current Status of OSAMP Fishery Maps Fishery Mitigation Policy  Design Guidelines Block Island Demonstration and Effects Study National Ocean Partnership Monitoring Guidelines Test  Bed Feeding Into Regional Efforts
  8. 8. Advantages of OSAMP. A Set Of Policies For Each Area Of The Plan Protection Of Existing Uses And Sensitive Resources  Or Unsuitable Areas Informational Requirements For Major Ocean  Developments And Development Standards For Those  Uses Continued Stakeholder Representation Through FAB  and HAB Public Review Every 2 Years and Mandatory Review  Every 5 years. Expansion Of Blanket Coverage Federal Consistency  Though GLD Potential payback already of 4 times the cost
  9. 9. Nesting NEPA inside of MSP can speeddecision making, enhance decisions, andmake the system more predictable.
