News Release
Marine Board Seeks Written Public Comment on Gold Lake - 11/05/19

The Oregon State Marine Board seeks written public comment to allow electric motors at slow-no wake speed on Gold Lake in Lane County.

Prior to the 2019 legislative session, Gold Lake and other lakes in various counties were designated in statute as non-motorized waterbodies.  Constituents brought forward HB 3168, which passed during the session that authorizes the Marine Board to open rulemaking on those waterbodies listed in statute. The agency received and accepted a petition for Gold Lake to allow the use of electric motors on the lake.

A public meeting is scheduled for December 3, 2019, from 11 am to 2 pm at the Eugene Public Library, Tykeson Room, 100 W. 10th Ave. in Eugene.

Written public comments will be accepted until 5 p.m. on Friday, December 20, 2019, and can be submitted via email to .rulemaking@oregon.gov">osmb.rulemaking@oregon.gov or by U.S. mail to Jennifer Cooper, Administrative Rules Coordinator, Oregon State Marine Board, 435 Commercial Street NE, Suite 400, Salem, OR 97301.  Comments via telephone will not be accepted.
