***SCC Strategic Plan – Public Comment Period Extended to Oct 30, 2017***
Due to the wildfires affecting many Californians, including several of our partners and stakeholders, we have extended the public comment on our Strategic Plan until Oct. 30, 2017. We strive to have a much input from the public and partner groups as possible on this plan and hope this extra time allows those impacted by these devastating fires to participate. Our thoughts are with the communities affected by the fires, and the people working to contain them.
The Public Comment period on the Coastal Conservancy’s Strategic Plan for 2018 – 2022 is open until Oct. 16, 2017.
Every five years, the Conservancy develops a Strategic Plan that identifies specific goals to guide the Conservancy’s work. The Strategic Plan provides an overall vision and metrics to measure the effectiveness of the Conservancy’s work. It outlines the Conservancy’s priorities in the context of California’s coastal management program and communicates to our partners – local governments, state and federal agencies, private landowners, nonprofit conservation organizations, and private conservation funders– and to the general public the future role of the Conservancy in protecting coastal resources.
We are currently in year five of the existing Strategic Plan. We have made great progress in achieving the objectives set in this plan and are now developing the Strategic Plan for 2018-2022.
The first draft of the 2018 – 2022 Strategic Plan can be found here:
The purpose of the plan is to help the Conservancy prioritize its work, allocating both its staff resources and funding to projects that achieve its objectives. We welcome public comments on this draft plan between now and October 30, 2017. To submit a comment, please email it to email@example.com, call 510-286-1015, or mail a comment to:
1515 Clay St. 10th Floor
Oakland, CA 94612
The draft plan will also be discussed at our September 28 Board meeting, which is open to the public.
