- Develop peer-to-peer forums to share information and lessons learned and to provide opportunities to seek and provide advice.
- Establish mobile, regional, technical teams able to assist in local permitting decisions.
- Describe how your project will leverage existing programs (such as Coastal Training Program).
- If proposing staff training, describe how the training will increase jurisdictional capacity.
- Describe how your project will use best available guidance to support training (such as Ecology’s Soft Shore Stabilization (Gianou 2014); Ecology’s SMP Handbook; Marine Shoreline Design Guidelines).
- If a technical support team is developed, describe the expertise needed (such as licensed engineers and licensed geologists with coastal expertise) and how it will be obtained for the project.
- Consider opportunities to collaborate among regulatory agencies.
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.
