The Coastal Commission is in the process of circulating a Draft Tribal Consultation Policy, holding public hearings, and reviewing comments by California Native American Tribes and any other interested persons or parties. The goal is to develop and adopt a Tribal Consultation Policy in alignment with Governor Brown’s Executive Order B-10-11, which affirmed the State of California’s commitment to regular and meaningful consultation and collaboration with tribal officials in policy decisions that have tribal implications. The Coastal Commission’s Tribal Consultation Policy is intended to strengthen its relationships with Native American Tribes, while encouraging further outreach and collaboration. Notice of upcoming public hearings and documents currently under review are listed below.
Commission staff are also currently developing an Environmental Justice Policy.
If you have questions regarding the policy or the hearing, contact Mark Delaplaine at the above address, by telephone at: (415) 904-5289, or by email at: Mark.Delaplaine@coastal.ca.gov.
