The Northeast Regional Ocean Council (NROC) Ocean Planning Committee (OPC) was originally scheduled to hold an in-person meeting on April 2, 2020. Due to recent events, the NROC OPC decided instead to hold a series of webinars starting on April 2, and continuing on May 28. The NROC OPC is hopeful that we will be able to hold an in-person meeting in the Fall, recognizing that this meeting may need to be held differently than in the past.
The May 28 webinar will focus on an update of state-led marine planning efforts in Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts and on an update from the New England Fishery Management Council (NEFMC). Each of the presenters will describe policies related to transmission cables, aquaculture, offshore wind, and other activities.
Draft agenda as of 5/18/20 (231kb).
