  34. 34. Formula for SuccessPolitical & Policy Framework is in place: 25 years of state ocean planning: ● Statutory direction & expectations ● Ocean management policies (in state CZMP) ● Tested process (agencies, stakeholders) ● Literacy/expectations among the publicTechnical Framework is in place: ● State agency science/technical capacity ● Academic research capacity at OSU/UO, etc ● Technical expertise from NGO, university partners ● IT capacity within state CZM program    Partnerships, leveraging, and trust
  35. 35. Benefits of Marine Spatial PlanningFor industry and stakeholders: Increases certainty for investments Reduces costs in time and effort at project scale Strengthens industry – industry tiesFor government: Promotes better decisions Streamlines, clarifies decision process Reduces the Oops! FactorFor public: Provides transparency Preserves wide range of public values
  36. 36. Conclusion:Oregon’s CMSP ProcessTakes timeTakes effortTakes fundingNever EndsBut:It beats the alternatives (e.g. settlement agreements, lawsuits and appeals), and it’s a cost‐effective means of doing business because it‐ Improves certainty for private and public investments;‐ Reduces (but does not eliminate) political blowback.
