The project’s sixth Steering Committee meeting was held on December 9, 2013 at the GTM NERR Marineland Office. The project’s Collaboration Lead, Dr. Dawn Jourdan, presented a draft presentation for the next stakeholder workshop to be held February 24, 2014. The presentation included the information that the project team learned from the first stakeholder workshops in Fall 2012 and Spring 2013, as well as new results from the project’s technical analyses of future land use and habitat conservation design. The team was fortunate to have UF researchers Dr. Paul Zwick and Dr. Tom Hoctor on hand to answer questions. Overall, the meeting was very productive and the Steering Committee members provided valuable feedback on analytic inputs and how to communicate the technical results to the public.
