If so, show up to the various public meetings going on in the Mid-Atlantic over the next couple of months, hosted by the newly formed Mid-Atlantic Regional Planning Body (RPB). Let your voice be heard!
The RPB will be taking public comments on its role in managing the Mid-Atlantic’s coastal and ocean areas. This is a huge opportunity to protect your favorite coastal spot–don’t let other interests (like oil and gas) dominate these meetings!
