Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD) is accepting public comments on changes to Oregon Administrative Rule language regarding the newly designed Nehalem River Scenic Waterway. The proposed change would adopt management rules for the land adjacent to the waterway.

Specifically, the proposed rules would guide future development within 1/4 mile of the riverbank along the 17.5-mile section of river designated as the waterway.

Gov. Brown designed the Nehalem River Scenic Waterway in June. It begins at Henry Rierson Spruce Run campground and ends at the confluence of Cook Creek, near Cougar Valley State Park.

OPRD will accept public comments on the proposed change through 5 p.m. Nov 4. Comments can be made online, in writing, via email or in-person at an upcoming public meeting:

After reviewing public comments, OPRD staff plans to present a final recommended rule for consideration by the Oregon State Parks and Recreation Commission at its November 2019 or February 2020 business meeting.

Full text of the proposed change is available online at oregon.gov/oprd/Rules/pages/index.aspx.
