Interested parties are hereby notified the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Portland District (Corps) is updating our list of individuals and organizations interested in receiving notification of Regulatory Branch special and standard individual permit public notices. The Regulatory Branch issues public notices soliciting public comments on proposed projects requiring standard individual permits issued by the Department of the Army, also known as Corps permits, as well as special public notices announcing Regulatory Branch updates.
Electronic versions of public notices will be emailed, as an attachment, to those individuals and organizations who request to be on our electronic distribution lists. The notices will also be available on the Portland District’s web page at www.nwp.usace.army.mil/Missions/Regulatory.aspx.
The Regulatory Branch will continue to provide notice of public notice availability to property owners adjacent to proposed projects subject to standard individual permits, and individuals who do not have access to the internet or email. These notifications would include a paper copy of the public notice with all attachments through the U.S. mail.
The Portland District Regulatory Branch has jurisdiction over the state of Oregon, southern Washington ports, and restoration projects in the Columbia River estuary funded by the Bonneville Power Administration. Public Notice distribution lists for proposed projects are organized by the states of Oregon and Washington, as well as Oregon counties, communities, and watersheds. We can notify you of proposed projects subject to standard individual permit review in the state of Oregon, the Portland District’s area of jurisdiction in the state of Washington, or in any or all Oregon counties, communities, or watersheds.
As we update our distribution lists, we are requesting the following replies to this Special Public Notice. Those who do not confirm within 30 days from the date of this Special Public Notice will be removed from our distribution lists.
• For all current recipients: Update your contact information, as applicable.
• For current recipients of email notifications: Let us know if you would like to change your notification request list. Please see the attached form which lists regions of public notices you can request. Also, please ensure that your email account will accept our emails (i.e., not subject to SPAM blockers, require verification, etc.). If we receive returned emails as undeliverable, your email address will be deleted from our distribution lists.
• For current recipients of conventional mail notification (also known as hard copies): Confirm that you would like to continue to receive hard copies of Regulatory Branch public notices, or would prefer to receive public notices via email. We strongly encourage those that are currently receiving hard copies to send us your email address to receive electronic copies of Corps public notices. This is a more efficient process which saves time and resources.
• For all individuals not yet on the Portland District Regulatory Branch distribution lists: Request to be added to our distribution lists, via email or mail.
