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. We will be presenting our proposed revisions at the following public meetings:


May 29th: North County Recreation District (Nehalem) from 5:30pm - 7:30pm

May 30th: Tillamook County Main Library (Tillamook) from 5:45pm - 7:45pm

May 31st:  Kiawanda Community Center (Pacific City) from 5:30pm -7:30pm


For more information or questions, please contact Kristi Foster at 503-801-4122 or kristi@tbnep.org


The version below is our 1999 CCMP.  We would encourage you to review it to better compare to the proposed revisions which will be presented at the meetings.
