Tillamook Estuaries Partnership

A National Estuary Project


Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan

As a comprehensive management plan, the CCMP incorporates many good ideas from at least a dozen relevant resource management plans that focus on some part of the Tillamook Bay environment. Although not all are specifically referenced, the CCMP includes goals and objectives from all these plans and integrates them in a comprehensive, basin-wide vision for performance-based management.


TEP is in the process of revising its CCMP.  This is the first major revision since this document was approved in 1999.  The biggest change will be expanding the document to cover all of Tillamook County's bays and watersheds. Currently, its primary focus in on the Tillamook Bay.


Subsequently, we have set up 3 public meetings throughout the County to gather public input about all of our watersheds.

September 26th: Kiawanda Community Center (Pacific City) from 5:30pm -7:30pm

September 27th:  North County Recreation District (Nehalem) from 5:30pm - 7:30pm

September 28th: Tillamook County Main Library (Tillamook) from 5:30pm - 7:30pm
