The Pacific Fishery Management Council’s (Pacific Council) Ad Hoc Marine Planning Committee (MPC) will hold an online public meeting. The meeting will be held Tuesday, January 23, 2024, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Pacific Standard Time or until business for the day has been completed.  This meeting is being conducted remotely with a web broadcast that provides the opportunity for remote public comment. In the event an outage occurs or technical issues arise that impact the experience of remote attendees, we will attempt to resolve them but ultimately we cannot guarantee that they will be resolved satisfactorily. 

Purpose of the meeting

The purpose of this online meeting is for the MPC to consider current offshore wind (OSW) energy issues and to provide information and advice to the Pacific Council for consideration at its March 2024 meeting. Meeting topics may include the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management’s Notice of Intent (NOI) to Prepare a Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement for the five California OSW leases.  The NOI was issued December 20, 2023, with a 60-day comment period.  The MPC may also discuss the status of the Draft Wind Energy Areas off the Oregon Coast. Other OSW or aquaculture topics may be considered, as appropriate.
