Public Involvement in the Expedited Review of Plan 2014

The IJC appointed a Public Advisory Group based on nominations from the GLAM Committee. Members are leaders from shoreline associations, boating and tourism groups, environmental organizations, local governments, commercial navigation, First Nations and hydropower.

The Public Advisory Group will help the GLAM Committee seek potential improvements to regulation by contributing knowledge about water level impacts and input on the assessment methods. Public Advisory Group members have also been asked to help foster a two-way dialogue between the GLAM Committee and affected interests and constituencies. In addition to the work being done by the Public Advisory Group, the GLAM Committee will also seek broader public comment on the expedited review.

The IJC and ILOSLRB are committed to listening to the concerns and needs of all stakeholders in seeking potential improvements to Plan 2014. The IJC hopes that the expedited review will help reduce the risk of coastal impacts, but recognizes that no plan can prevent flooding when extremely wet conditions occur. Another hope is that the process will increase public understanding about the impacts of weather conditions, water supply, and human influences on water levels, including the limits of any regulation plan.
