The OGD stakeholder group identified that the most important next step to develop the implementation plan is to establish metrics and prioritization for our watershed-wide goals. The OGD stakeholder group recognizes that we want to maintain autonomy over some components of the implementation plan (e.g., planned actions of individual organizations/jurisdictions), while some components will require broader plans for community engagement and adaptive management before a “decision” can be reached (e.g., measureable goals and desired future conditions at a watershed-scale)
Based on this feedback from the group, we are moving forward with an adaptive management approach to developing the implementation plan. Rather than making formal/final decisions on implementation plan content, the stakeholder group will generate preliminary recommendations to be adapted over time. The online engagement tool (Public Input) could be used to help select preliminary recommendations, while documenting important limitations (e.g., additional stakeholders/communities that need to be consulted and/or additional information that needs to be collected and considered). This will enable us develop and advance an actionable implementation plan.
Defining the desired future state for each goal area gives us clarity to set measurable goals, select metrics for tracking progress, and to prioritize our actions under that goal area. Below are the draft future statements based on the content from OGD stakeholder group meetings thus far. Please feel free to provide input and feedback on these draft future statements. They will all be part of the implementation plan we are developing together.
The future states for goals 1, 2, 3, and 4 have been edited to reflect feedback from the October 10, 2019 stakeholder meeting. They are each labeled as "Version 2".
This is the first version of the future states for goals 5, 6, and 7. They are each labeled as "Version 1".
