Roles & Responsibilities

Purpose

To ensure that the concept design and associated projects reflect the ideas and input of the residents and businesses in the vicinity of the creeks as well as those community-wide stakeholder groups with interest in the restoration and enhancement of the creeks: Alazan, Apache, Martinez, and San Pedro.

“The purpose of the stakeholder involvement program is to ensure that the concept design development is inclusive and reflects the ideas and input of the residents and businesses in the vicinity of the creeks as well as those community-wide stakeholder groups with interest in the restoration and enhancement of the creeks. The program should keep the “end in mind” and recognize that the project is long term and may involve many phases of development. Generating interest, advocacy and synergy for a common “vision” through an inclusive public involvement process is an important first step and will give the project initial credibility and promote a better chance for long term success.”
