Local governments are at the forefront of dealing with a variety of coastal issues. Given the importance of this role, the WCGA Executive Committee is taking steps to build new partnerships with city and county elected officials and staff. This new collaboration will result in the development of shared priorities for ocean and coastal health and a set of strategies to ensure lasting communication between local entities and the WCGA.
Outreach to local governments will include hosting workshops, webinars, and conducting surveys. The input collected will inform the WCGA strategic planning process and help develop a mechanism of communication between the WCGA and local entities.
