The Stakeholder and Public Participation Plan (Participation Plan) supports the ongoing project data collection and analysis, and describes the objectives and tools for stakeholder and broader public engagement throughout the process. It is based in part on recommendations generated from independent stakeholder conversations convened by the Otak consultant team prior to and following the first Kaaterskill Clove VUM public meeting on May 10, 2023.

Public engagement is critical to the success of this project. The first meeting in a two-part series of public meetings was held May 10th.
On March 29, 2023, the Otak team convened a group interview with representatives of several stakeholder organizations interested in the Kaaterskill Clove visitor use study area. These “stakeholder conversations” were part of an initial assessment to learn key issues and concerns about visitor use-related conditions within this study area, ideas and opportunities for improvements, and address any VUM process questions or considerations. A synthesis of the meeting (linked below) was prepared and distributed to participants.
During the meeting we invited participants to suggest others whom they felt we should be reaching out to. We will continually strive to be inclusive and eager to hear from those with interests in this study area.
Please contact Susan Hayman, Ross Strategic and member of the Otak Team, at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about this meeting.
