The Mid-Atlantic Regional Planning Body, or RPB, is a newly formed round-table of state, federal, and tribal government representatives who are tasked with creating a comprehensive plan for Mid-Atlantic coasts and oceans. For sample comments click here. For more information about the RPB process click here. To send comments by email use this address: MidAtlanticRPB@boem.gov
If no one shows up to talk about surfing, but 50 people show up to talk about fishing, boating, ports, offshore energy, etc, the RPB might get the idea that nobody really surfs in the Mid-Atlantic. Showing up means something!
