Environmental Services Strategic Plan

GWRC’s role in regional environmental services has been growing with increased support from the state to provide technical assistance to member localities.

The purpose of this strategic plan is to identify the region’s environmental service needs, coordinate the requirements of related programs, create a list of strategies, and develop an implementation plan. The result is a recommendation for the annual scopes of work for each program over the next ten years. The list will house strong proposals for projects that build upon each other over time to maximize impact and return on investment. It also provides a “wish list” of unfunded projects, a desire to acquire cash for matching federal grants instead of in-kind services, and an easily referenced list of partners and potential funding sources for achieving all our strategies.

The plan was collaboratively prepared with locality staff, and adopted by the GWRC Board on November 16, 2020 through GWRC Resolution 21-06.

2023 FRAMEWORK UPDATE

GWRC staff worked with the Regional Environmental Managers Technical Advisory Committee to craft aworking document meant to tie together the 2020 Environmental Strategic Plan and the 2022 GWRC Strategic Plan. The framework provides vision and focus for the Environmental Plan from the GWRC Plan as well as updated action items for the Environmental Services program.
