Oregon Sea Grant

On the ground resilience planning often requires the inclusion of up-to date scientific and technical information embedded in a stakeholder-centered communication process. Along this line, we offer facilitation services that guide dialogue in the process of making important decisions about coastal planning and we serve as a bridge between university resources and local end users. Oregon Sea Grant helps decision makers identify the information they need and the hurdles they are encountering on the way to making sound decisions, and as appropriate, connects them with relevant research and researchers. We have worked with communities on their comprehensive planning, and in the process of developing new zoning regulations. Our hazard resilience extension faculty, Pat Corcoran, participates in numerous projects at state and local levels. We have also been involved in projects using the Envision model developed by John Bolte of Oregon State University, which allows communities to engage in a meaningful scenario planning process.
