How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The BLM's Coastal Oregon RAC provides representative citizen counsel and advice to the Secretary of the Interior through the Bureau of Land Management's Coos Bay District Manager and the Oregon/Washington State Director concerning the planning and management of public land resources located within the jurisdictional boundaries of the BLM’s Coos Bay and Northwest Oregon Districts.
How is membership balanced?*Members of the Coastal Oregon RAC are appointed to represent the following three interest groups:Category One: Five members who represent energy and mineral development (with a special emphasis on transportation or rights-of-way interests); the commercial timber industry; organized labor or non-timber forest product harvester groups; developed outdoor recreation, off-highway vehicle users, or commercial recreation (with a special emphasis on commercial or recreation fishing); or Federal grazing or other land permits or represent nonindustrial private forest land owners.Category Two: Five members who represent nationally recognized environmental organizations; regionally or locally recognized environmental organizations; dispersed recreational activities; archaeological and historical interests; or nationally or regionally recognized wild horse and burro interest groups, wildlife or hunting organizations, or watershed associations.Category Three: Five members who hold state elected office; hold county or local elected office; represent Indian tribes within or adjacent to the area for which the Council is organized; are school officials or teachers with knowledge in natural resource management or the natural sciences; or represent the affected public-at-large and/or are employed by a state agency responsible for the management of natural resources, land or water.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*The RAC did not meet in FY2020, but meetings typically occur two to four times per year.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The RAC develops recommendations for the BLM regarding the preparation, amendment, and implementation of land use plans for the public lands and resources within the jurisdiction of the RAC. This may require the RAC to, at the direction of the Designated Federal Official, gather and analyze information, conduct studies and field examinations, hear public comments, and provide advice on the issues presented. The RAC will also make recommendations on Secure Rural Schools Title II project proposals when the legislation is reauthorized. The Advisory Council is also chartered to make recommendations to the Secretary regarding recreation fees.
Why close or partially close meetings?All meetings are open to the public. Notices of the meetings are published in the Federal Register, posted on the website, and distributed to local newspapers.
Recommendation RemarksThe Coastal Oregon Resource Advisory Council (2550) was consolidated with the Northwest (2551) and Southwest (2552) Oregon Resource Advisory Councils into a single Western Oregon Resource Advisory Council (84606).

The RAC did not meet in FY2020.
