(No paper) The framework consists of a an Oversight Committee made up of Agency Department Heads, a Steering Committee comprised of local area Agency managers, and five Technical Committees: 1) Flood Control, 2) Habitat, 3) Water Quality, 4) Public Involvement, and 5) Recreation. Members serving on the Technical Committees were asked to leave Agency-Hats at the door and were charged with producing three items; 1) A project which addressed all issues that particular committee felt needed to be addressed, 2) A project that may not address all the committees issues, but would be acceptable overall, and 3) A project and/or criteria that would not be tolerated. It is now the task of the Steering Committee to work with the Technical Committee products and synthesize them into a preferred alternative acceptable both technically and by the stakeholders.
