The Mid-Atlantic Regional Planning Body (MidA RPB) is pleased to share that the Mid-Atlantic Regional Ocean Action Plan has been certified by the National Ocean Council (NOC), as announced in the White House blog.


The MidA RPB finalized the Plan after considering all comments received during the 60-day public comment period and during the open house public listening sessions hosted by the Mid-Atlantic Regional Council on the Ocean (MARCO) throughout the region.  A response to comments document describing how the MidA RPB incorporated public input is on the MidA RPB website, along with a Frequently Asked Questions document.  The MidA RPB appreciates the efforts of all stakeholders and members of the public who provided comments and participated throughout the Plan development process.


To provide further information on the release of the Ocean Action Plan, the MidA RPB held a public webinar on Thursday, December 8, 2016.  Follow this link to review the transcripts and recording of the webinar.
