The Coos Estuary Land Use Analysis

Project Overview Resource
October 2018

Land use planning that reflects present-day economic, social, and ecological conditions is fundamental to improve estuarine and shoreland management. For communities like Coos Bay, Oregon, the challenge of updating decades-old land use plans began with information: the collection and synthesis of spatial data to give a full picture of how estuaries and shorelands are being used compared to how they are zoned.
