Government Networks Committee

The purpose of this committee is to bring State Agency Heads and regional government administrators together with local officials of the target area to more effectively communicate local needs/understand agency functions.  The Government Networks Committee is made up of county commissioners, mayors, and state agency directors. This group engages in the following:

  1. Discuss how federal and state agencies can work with local governments to cooperatively address local issues (i.e., storm water management, public access, environmentally appropriate affordable housing, habitat protection).
  2. Educate local officials/other federal/state/regional agencies about how each agency works or what the main issues are at the local level (opp. for federal and state agencies to present what they do to the group; opp. for local communities to discuss major issues with state agencies and other communities).
  3. Engage in constructive dialogue on ways to partner state agencies with local governments or local governments with other local governments to affect positive results.
  4. Cooperatively identify tasks/role for MBNEP in addressing issues or galvanizing action.
