A Note on Scoping:
Scoping is the process of identifying issues, potential impacts, and reasonable alternatives associated with the issue at hand. It provides the first and best opportunity for the public to make suggestions or to raise issues and concerns before the Council begins developing an amendment.

For more information on any of these meetings, please call the Gulf Council at 813-348-1630.
