Participatein our project

Stakeholders can engage in the planning process through attendance at public meetings and through on-line engagement. The intent of the outreach process is to ensure that the issues and scenarios studied reflect the views and concerns of all stakeholders including residents, property owners, military representatives and elected and appointed officials. There will be nine public meetings during the study, each located within one of the Special Areas.
