Natural Resources Committee

The Natural Resources Committee addresses topics concerning or impacting significant natural resources in the Region and makes recommendations for policy or actions to the Executive Board and Commission.

The Committee recently completed a complete revision of the Natural Resource Section of the Regional Plan. This Section had not been updated since 1994 and much of the content was revised. In particular the water resource, air quality, scenic resource and mineral & earth resources subsections were substantially updated. Upon completion, the Regional Plan was amended to include the revised Natural Resource Section.

The Natural Resources Committee is currently focused on water-based planning initiatives and forest stewardship.
