Stakeholder concerns were initially gathered during the first stakeholder and steering committee meeting held January 21, 2011.
Every steering committee meeting and work group meeting since then has been a public meeting and we always ask for new concerns to be listed. These meetings, along with newspaper articles and personal conversations have been the secondary mechanism for stakeholder concerns to be recorded.
They can be summarized as follows:
The steering committee and work groups then took the concerns list and developed problem statements to bridge the gap from obtaining information to setting concrete goals. These statements helped to clarify our thinking and move forward in the planning process. These will continue to be updated and be used as a guide for the final goals and action plan.
