Good Afternoon Everyone,

Attached are copies of a template letter to assist with your organization’s scoping comment letter as well as copies of the ESA discussion slides shared by Molly last week. Please feel free to personalize and edit the template language to best capture how implementation of the BiOp will impact your area. Please also make sure the FEMA docket number is included on your comment letter. The docket number is included in the template scoping letter. Comments are due May 5th.

Comment Submission: Here is a link to the Notice of Intent to Prepare an Environmental Impact Statement for Oregon page where formal comments can be submitted: Access to review comments already received can also be found at this link:

Ten comments have been received to date.

Thank you for your support of Tillamook County’s efforts to address FEMA’s implementation plan and thank you for taking quick action to also respond to FEMA during the comment period. Please do not hesitate to email me (and Lynn-copied) if there is anything else I can do to help with comments this week. Lynn will help me keep an eye out for emails so we can respond as quickly as possible.
