Website comments now enabled

We have updated the website software to WordPress 3.4. One of the new benefits of the Jetpack plugin is connecting via your active facebook, twitter, or wordpress.com login (the connection is secure and encrypted and does not go through our site). Now you can leave comments after any post with a comment box appearing below it. If you don’t want to log in with these social media tools, you need to fill out your name and email. In any event we will never share or sell your email or contact information.

We still plan to moderate all comments for the time being, so it may be a short while before your comments appear. Down the road we may implement a more formal online forum if there is enough demand. Enjoy the debate!

Survey: What are your hopes for the Kettle River Watershed Management Plan?

We’ve created this survey to help understand your hopes and needs for the Kettle River Watershed Management Plan, and to identify opportunities to involve the public over the next two years. There are four broad phases to our work, each of which will include extensive opportunities for public involvement:

  1. Scoping – developing our work plan, gathering feedback and determining what further information is required for planning (May-July 2012)
  2. Issues analysis – learning from the public and best available scientific information about the issues of concern (i.e. causes, impacts, extent). Prioritizing issues for recommendations or “parking” for further study, discussion, or local decisions (Summer 2012 – Spring 2013)
  3. Recommendations – Developing goals and recommendations to resolve issues and achieve the goals (Spring 2013 – Winter 2013)
  4. Implementation planning and consultation (Spring 2014)
The work plan and public involvement plan will be finalized based on your input and discussions by the Advisory Group over the next few weeks. All of your information will be held confidentially and if you submit your contact information it will not be shared or used except to contact you for follow up. Thanks!
