POW doesn’t trust DFG’s “new” Strategic Vision Project

Fish and Game to hold Public Meetings on Strategic Vision Project 


The Department of Fish and Game (DFG) recently released the draft interim framework for the new Strategic Vision Project. Included in the document released to the public is an extensive appendix documenting what members of the working group have perceived to be problems within the department, coupled with possible solutions. This document does not reflect any consensus among the stakeholders, but rather reflects a variety of suggestions put forth by the numerous participants.

Now that this document has been made available to the public on www.vision.ca.gov, DFG has scheduled four public hearings across the state.  The objectives of the public meetings are to brief members of the public on the status of the California Fish and Wildlife Strategic Vision Project (where the process is at and upcoming next steps), briefly outline the contents of the draft interim framework and the common themes, and invite questions and comments on the draft interim strategic vision. The meeting schedule is as follows:

December 5 – Public Meeting (5:30 – 7:30 p.m.)

CCA encourages participation in this public process, as the suggestions that are produced by this group in the final Strategic Vision will be presented to the legislature as a set of recommendations requiring legislative action. Should there be recommendations that CCA staff and members are not comfortable with, or, alternatively, suggestions which are supported by the membership, it will be important to be prepared for them to become bills in the upcoming legislative session. For more information from CCA, contact Margo Parks at (916) 444-0845 or by e-mail at margo@calcattlemen.org.
