Natural Resources Plan

Draft Outlines For Review

Getting Started

Within this page you will find the six Natural Resources Plan Categories and their descriptions. We have further broken down the Categories into smaller Topic Areas which most of you are familiar with. Please note, some of these Topics have changed slightly in nomenclature and content. TMRPA has talked with various stakeholders, researched, and collected data within each of these areas, and compiled all information into draft outlines which will then ultimately be turned into narratives within the Natural Resources Plan.

Our hope is to have you review each of the Topic Areas within your Category, and add to or edit the information for accuracy and completeness. Please feel free to review additional Topic Areas within other Categories after you have completed your main Category area. When editing please keep in mind that grammar and flow is not our priority at the moment, we are currently focused on getting the right information to build the background for each topic.

When reviewing please feel free to:
  • Check information for accuracy
  • Add additional missing information, statistics, or data
  • Provide comment
  • Add other helpful sources or relevant agencies
  • Give feedback on Category and Topic names

    Next, scroll below to your Category, and begin editing each Topic Area by clicking the name of each Topic, this will take you to the Google Doc editing platform.
