Environmental Justice Advisory Planning Workgroup

Back to EJ Strategic and Implementation Planning

In 10 meetings from July 2006 to April 2007, DPR met with an informal advisory group to solicit recommendations on an EJ strategy and implementation plan. The meetings were open to the public and meeting agendas and minutes posted on DPR’s Web site for review and comment by interested parties. In June 2007, the workgroup recommendations were finalized. They are posted below.
