(I'm just passing on information that may be of interest. I don't run the site.)

NOAA’s National Marine Protected Areas Center (NMPAC), working with the Communications Partnership for Science and the Sea (COMPASS), has developed a web-based clearinghouse - - to provide a source for timely information about ongoing governmental MPA planning efforts along the west coast from Washington to California. For each MPA planning process, the site is to provide up-to-date information on goals, possible outcomes, timelines, upcoming public meetings, draft environmental documents, links to the responsible agency programs, and agency points of contact. To be updated regularly with input from over a dozen federal and state MPA agencies, this site is intended to give all interested stakeholders the tools to track and effectively engage in MPA activity throughout the Pacific region.
