Marine Spatial Planning

Interagency Team and Process

A state law required an interagency team to develop marine spatial plans in Washington. Washington is using an existing interagency team, the State Ocean Caucus, to develop the Pacific Coast Marine Spatial Plan. Ecology is the lead agency for the planning process. The planning process also involves engaging tribes, local governments, federal agencies, and stakeholders. Learn more about the planning process.
