First round of public meetings
DENR previously held five public meetings regarding BIMP development in December 2008. These meetings included a preview of the draft BIMP management regions. A summary of public comments received is available here.

Following are PDF files of the presentations for each region:

Region 1; Region 2 a and b; Region 2c and 3a; Region 3b, 4a, 4b, 4c; All Regions

BIMP regions

The regions and sub-regions were delineated using natural features as well as existing county lines. The next step will be developing management strategies for each region and sub-region. As management strategies are developed, the state divisions of Coastal Management and Water Resources will attempt to incorporate the ecological, economic and socio-political factors affecting beach and inlet management.
