The project team is committed to a transparent and thorough stakeholder engagement process that ensures multiple opportunities and pathways for participation.
The project team attended two events in 2018 to increase awareness of the project and encourage participation in scoping.
- Harbor Days (Aug. 31 - Sept. 2, 2018)
- Olympia Arts Walk (Oct. 5, 2018)
Additional events for 2019 are under consideration.
Enterprise Services provided scoping briefings during scoping, at the invitation of individual, established organizations. Briefings included a presentation regarding the current scoping process, environmental analysis, preparation of the EIS (including Work Group participation), and the public involvement process. Participants were invited to ask clarifying questions to help in submitting informed comments during the scoping period.
Additional briefings are anticipated when the Draft EIS is released.
Community Sounding Board
The project team is convening a Community Sounding Board representing a diverse range of interests. This group will meet approximately once per quarter to provide feedback on various EIS elements. If you or someone you know would be interested in participating as a member of this board, please email us. More details on participation and meeting timing are expected soon.
