New committee looks to boost forestry industry
LONG BEACH >> A new marine salvage committee from Long Beach hopes to make sure the industry is thriving and a healthy economy thrives.
“We need a really good relationship with the industry, especially since we have got a population of 1.3 billion people,” said board member Rob Wren, chair of the Long Beach Marine Conservation District Coastal Resource Task Force, which was fo슬롯 머신rmed on Feb. 15. “I would like to see a more consistent relationship. I think there would be a greater desire to protect the marine environment in Long Beach, which I believe is under threat.”
The Long Beach Marine Conservation District Coastal Resource Task Force will focus on “the management of all marine resources in the county, including the coastal r엠카지노esources of Long Beach,” the task force said in a news release.
Wren said the organization plans to hire 30 staffers for 포항안마the Marine Resources Task Force and 30 more on the Coastwide Coastal Resources Task Force, which are intended for areas that may be endangered or threatened. The three task forces will report to the Coastal Resources Task Force’s executive committee.
Members will be required to submit plans of action, an annual budget estimate, annual plans for the maintenance, expansion and improvement of all marine facilities and public beach areas and a strategy for marine conservation. The group will conduct a comprehensive survey of Long Beach’s marine resources and determine if there are any significant gaps in the district’s management.
The task force hopes to establish “a working relationship” between the district and the industry, he said.
“I would like to see us as a partner and partnership with the industry to really find out what they’re doing and make sure that the resources they are using in Long Beach are protected,” he said.
Wren said the task force will focus on “rehabilitation of coastal resources.”
He expects the task force will produce a plan to identify potential threats to coastal resources as early as next year.
The Long Beach task force also is considering hiring a former Coastal Resources Director. He would have worked for the district on the board before his death, said Wren, who described him as a person who “had a passion for the industry, a love for it and an interest in protecting that resource that could provide us jobs.
“The next administration must look at all the stakeholders for the future of our coast, not just the ones that are looking out for business,” Wren said. “This group is for the next administration.”
