The objectives of the public meeting are
As in the consultation phase, we may use a workshop format to ensure everyone has an opportunity to be heard and we are also willing to meet again individually with interested groups. Upon completion of this third set of meetings we will finalise our review and prepare the final report.
Update on NEEF MC Activities
As we discussed in our public presentation in March, the Management committee met with the Nechako Watershed Council (NWC), the District of Vanderhoof, the Nechako Environment & Water Stewardship Society (NEWSS), the Nechako White Sturgeon Recovery initiative (NWSRI) and Freshwater Fisheries Society of British Columbia (FFSBC), and met twice with the Cheslatta Carrier Nation (CCN). Each of these groups presented their ideas and priorities for use of the NEEF. We also received written input from several individuals.
In addition to the public and stakeholder meetings we held workshops In April and early May with scientists and technical experts to discuss various topics including hydrology, geomorphology, fish and fish habitat, and hydraulic engineering matters related to the Nechako.
Also included Summary of Proposed NEEF Options, Preliminary NEEF MC Direction.
