New York Bight Case Study: Planning Offshore Wind Projects with Stakeholder Input
Public participation from other ocean users is essential to help the United States fully realize the benefits of offshore wind power. Stakeholders, including members of the public, have numerous opportunities during the offshore wind development process to provide feedback during the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management’s (BOEM) regulatory process.
This case study of the New York Bight shows how stakeholder input from maritime industries, state and federal agencies, commercial fisheries, non-governmental organizations and others were gathered and incorporated into the Final Sale Notice (FSN) area. The FSN area was reduced by 72 percent from the original Call area.
