Public Workshop #2 Held March 2013

Residents throughout the NAS PAX JLUS Study Area had an opportunity to provide their input on the compatibility issues and their priorities at the second set of public workshops held March 26 and 27, 2014 throughout the region.

Community members throughout the NAS PAX JLUS study area joined together during the second set public workshops held on March 26 (in Easton, MD for the Middle Western Shore sub area and in Salisbury, MD for the Lower Eastern Shore sub area) and on March 27 (in California, MD for the Southern Maryland sub area and in Warsaw, VA for the Virginia Northern Neck sub area). During these workshops, community members received an overview of the JLUS, a status update of the development of the report, and participated in an interactive exercise where they prioritized the compatibility issues that were identified for the JLUS. The public voted on prioritization of issues identified to date by placing adhesive dots on large posters to indicate the priority of the issue. The priorities will be used to identify the timeframe for which the recommendations should be addressed.
