Final Sitka Sedge Master Plan



Following up on OPRD Commission approval in September 2016, the Oregon State Rulemaking process in December 2016, and Tillamook County compatibility review in early 2017, the Sitka Sedge State Natural Area Master Plan has now been finalized and has been posted at the Oregon State Park Master Plan page:

OPRD will continue to work with Tillamook County on permitting for recreation improvements proposed in the plan throughout this spring and summer with projected park opening later this year. Once we have a clearer time frame, will contain updates on park development.

The ongoing hydrology study that will help inform plans for restoring fish passage and native hydrology to south Sand Lake Estuary and adjacent creeks is still ongoing and we have actively been collecting data since Fall 2016. Once data collection is completed a report will be made available and reviewed with the public. OPRD anticipates this study could take up to two years, at which point the neighborhood and advisory committee will be engaged in continued conversations about potential restoration options – with comprehensive data as a reference.
