Purpose: Get State legislative mandate to develop coral reef management plan for southeast Florida Project Legitimization Committee April 24, 2014
Project Legitimization Committee Pros: To increase odds of success of implementing conservation measures
Project Legitimization Committee Cons: May have unintended consequences Elected officials might want to participate and push their own agenda DEP personnel and contracted facilitator cannot participate
Project Legitimization Committee Compatibility with Mission of OFR: OFR partly funded by DEP DEP funds cannot be used for lobbying North CWG formed similar subgroup that will meet next month
Project Legitimization Committee Meeting outcome: PLC will continue but be independent from South CWG…. James Byrne (TNC) will be the lead Goal will be to obtain legislative support for mandate to implement final recommendations of the OFR working groups
Project Legitimization Committee Questions: Does South CWG support this effort? Should North and South groups work together or separately?
