The program is being managed by a Policy Committee (PC), whose membership is provided under the “Public Participation” tab at the top of this website’s home page. This PC is being assisted as needed by a “Technical Committee” comprised of members of the PC, as well as other experts in various subject areas, such as utilities, communications, coastal policy, land use regulation, natural resources and other topics.
These project committees are being assisted by the consultant, with additional input and guidance being provided by stakeholders and the general public. The planning process used in the JLUS is structured and iterative. It includes the following basic steps:
- Project mobilization, including acquiring and evaluating relevant data such as, local, regional and State plans, policies, studies, maps, reports, statutes, regulations, economic , environmental, transportation, communication and other data.
- Establishing key compatibility topics to be analyzed in detail, based on the initial analysis and input from the PC, TC, stakeholders and the public.
- Evaluating key compatibility topics, identifying their current and future potential impacts and developing, with the community’s help, strategy options and initiatives, which if pursued, will enhance compatibility.
