Oregon's Kitchen Table & Mid-Coast Water Planning Partnership Collaboration on Community Engagement Projects
Phase 1 Community Engagement Project
In 2018, the Partnership and Oregon's Kitchen Table engaged with 680 people that work in, live in, own a business in, or often visit Oregon's Mid-Coast region to assess their knowledge, values, and beliefs about water and the future of water in the region. As the Partnership creates and implements a long-term vision for water management in the region, it's important to reflect on the key outcomes of this public engagement process.

Phase 2 Community Engagement Project
During the fall and winter of 2021-2022, the Mid-Coast Water Planning Partnership (the Partnership), worked with Oregon’s Kitchen Table (OKT), to conduct a public engagement process to hear from people in the Mid-Coast (from Cascade Head to Cape Perpetua) about the Partnership’s Water Action Plan. The Partnership particularly wanted to hear from members of the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians, members of the Latinx community and Spanish speakers, people involved in tourism and hospitality and business and industry in the region, and from people who had participated in the previous public engagement process (2018). The Partnership wanted to know priority areas and concerns, themes regarding how people saw themselves playing a role in implementation and recommendations for future engagement.
