The Plan may not incorporate all of the input provided by the public. The project team will listen to concerns, input and aspirations shared by the public and, when possible, make changes to alternatives developed to reflect public input. Additionally, feedback will be provided on how the public influenced decisions in the Plan. 

Stakeholder Advisory Panel

The objectives of the Stakeholder Advisory Panel (Panel) are to present information about the planning process to major stakeholder groups and to ensure that those tasked with making planning decisions hear and consider public concerns and aspirations related to the process.  

Specifically, the Panel is an advisory board representing major stakeholder groups that have an interest in the planning process. The Panel serves several important functions, including:

  • Representing a broad range of stakeholder groups
  • Receiving information about the planning process
  • Communicating public concerns and aspirations as the voice of key stakeholders

It is important to note that the Panel serves only in an advisory capacity. While the Panel may offer opinions, advice, and guidance, the MAC is solely responsible for all planning decisions.

Meeting materials will be posted on the documents and links page when they become available.
