The NATURAL RESOURCES JOINT ADVISORY GROUP will hold a Virtual Meeting via Zoom at 7:00 pm, Monday August 2, 2021. Among the agenda items will be an update on the consultant’s work on the draft of the new proposed Forestry and Natural Resources Plan. The scheduled date for release of the draft is this September. ATAG has advocated for an updated tree canopy survey using available 2020 data instead of a 2016 study to reflect the significant recent changes due to rapid development and the need for better tools to evaluate the equity issues.
The meeting will also address staffing issues currently being experienced.
Public comments addressing any relevant issues or concerned are allowed two minutes each at the beginning of these meetings. For more information and to register to speak go to https://commissions.arlingtonva.us/events/natural-resources-joint-advisory-group-nrjag-meeting-virtual-2021-08-02/
