Environmental Management

East Central’s communities and counties are impacted by many environmental policy decisions that are made by broader units of government. These policies, projects and programs are determined or influenced by the region’s various stakeholder groups. East Central’s involvement and participation in various agency and private-sector sponsored meetings, events, and initiatives is deemed a critical activity for several reasons: 1) It allows staff to keep informed on issues and projects, and relay information to various communities; 2) It gives communities in the region an objective voice on issues and projects that it may not have sufficient time and/or resources to participate in, and; 3) It helps to achieve coordination among entities for projects that are multi-jurisdictional in nature.
