The Goals of the Partnership for Coastal Watersheds are to anticipate and respond as needed to local changes in the South Slough and Coastal Frontal watersheds, and to establish a public forum that facilitates community collaboration and decision making
The Partnership for Coastal Watersheds is driven by two underlying premises:
- Project Premise 1 – The local effects of climate change and changes in land use have the potential to affect our community’s quality of life and long-term economic viability.
So – How can our community plan ahead to address these potential changes?
- Project Premise 2 – Our Community does not have an effective way to collaborate or make decisions about the opportunities and issues we need to address now and in the future.
So – How can our community effectively address opportunities and issues?
How is the Partnership Guided?The Partnership for Coastal Watersheds is guided by a steering committee of knowledgeable community members whose experience and vision help our community respond to changes in our watersheds that have the potential to affect our region’s quality of life.
