The Habitat Conservancy established and appointed a public advisory committee to solicit input from stakeholders with interest in Plan implementation. The Public Advisory Committee reports directly to the Conservancy Governing Board. Committee members are drawn from a variety of interest groups, including conservation advocacy organizations, landowner groups, and development interests.
The Public Advisory Committee provides input to the Conservancy Governing Board and staff on all aspects of Plan implementation, with an emphasis on the following topics:
Expenditure of funds for habitat conservation measures
The general permit issuance process (but not project-by-project input on permits)
Operation of preserves and adaptive management
Adherence to plan commitments (e.g., no surprises, neighboring landowner protections)
The Public Advisory Committee (PAC) usually meets the second Thursday of every third month except for November, which is the fourth Thursday of the month to avoid Veteran's Day holiday. The following calendar of Public Advisory Committee meetings has been established for 2021. While the calendar is set, special meetings or changes may be made as the committee deems necessary:
Thursday, May 13, 2021
Thursday August 12, 2021
Thursday, November 18, 2021
The meetings will be held via Zoom, and it is anticipated that May, August and November meeting will begin at 1 pm.
