Summarize accomplishments from:
Regional Priority Approach Description
Approach - Collaborative, multi-benefit groups develop a plan that prioritizes locations to restore or protect
Desired Outcome - Broadly supported strategies, policies, and programs use available data to protect ecologically important lands.
Policy Needs - N/A
- Develop multi-stakeholder forums to develop consensus around locations to restore or protect.
- Share data on current ecological and human context and future ecological and human context to inform decisions.
- Develop or enhance TDR and PDR programs to conserve habitat and working lands.
- Develop a subarea plan for a regional growth center under VISION 2040, or other designated urban center, that incorporates a mix of uses, affordable housing, and an area-wide stormwater strategy.
- Form a buffer task force that provides technical assistance and incentives to landowners.
- Describe how enabling factors and barriers have been addressed to allow for successful planning.
- Describe the dataset, protocols and analyses that will be used and how your project will coordinate with partners conducting ongoing work (such as Regional Open Space Strategy, Department of Commerce Critical Areas Assistance Handbook).
- Describe the communications and outreach strategy that will be used to bring in the relevant stakeholder groups and the facilitation plan for conflict resolution.
- Describe how climate change projections will be incorporated into the planning process.
- Consider developing subarea plans for urban centers that include a mix of uses to accommodate growth, and provide access to services, transit, and neighborhood amenities.
Local Context - Local context provides additional specificity on how a Regional Priority approach should be implemented in each local area; examples include sequencing, partners to consider, and critical areas. Local context for this Regional Priority approach is available here.
