Beneficial Uses Protect and encourage the beneficial uses of ocean resources  such as navigation, food production, recreation, aesthetic  enjoyment, and uses of the seafloor provided that such  activities ‐ do not adversely affect the resources protected in subsection  1., above (ecological resources and fisheries);  avoid, to the extent possible, adverse effects on or  operational conflicts with other ocean uses and activities;  and  comply with the applicable requirements of the Oregon TSP.

  34. 34. Formula for Success Political & 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 public Technical 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 Planning For industry and stakeholders: Increases certainty for investments Reduces costs in time and effort at project scale Strengthens industry – industry ties For government: Promotes better decisions Streamlines, clarifies decision process Reduces the Oops! Factor For public: Provides transparency Preserves wide range of public values
  36. 36. Conclusion: Oregon’s CMSP Process Takes time Takes effort Takes funding Never Ends But: 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.
