Public Workshops

Three public workshops will be conducted at key points throughout the project.
  • This workshop will explain the purpose and function of the JLUS, explain the nature of military operations at Youngstown ARS, introduce project participants, describe the JLUS approach, and discuss the goals of the JLUS. The format of this workshop will include a presentation to the public followed by an interactive working session where attendees will be invited and encouraged to share their input on potential JLUS issues.
  • This workshop will update the public with the status of work completed to date and to solicit input, prioritize the compatibility issues and solicit input on the resolution of conflicts and impacts with a formal presentation and an interactive exercise. In conjunction with the exercise, Matrix will also discuss and facilitate ideas on how best to resolve community conflicts in small groups.
  • This workshop will present the Public Draft JLUS and recommendations. Participants will be encouraged to provide feedback either during the meeting with comment cards, following the workshop through the project website, or by email to the JLUS Project Manager. The goal is to inform, educate and solicit feedback from the public on the JLUS before any action is taken to adopt the JLUS.
