Public involvement is a key component of the NRDAR process. In addition to general comments and feedback, the public is invited to comment and provide input on two documents during the process: the Damage Assessment Plan and the Restoration and Compensation Determination Plan (RCDP). Drafts of each of these documents will be made available for review by any stakeholders, including other affected Federal or State agencies or Indian Tribes, and any other interested member of the public for a period of at least 30 calendar days. Public comments received during this comment period will be considered for inclusion in the final Damage Assessment Plan and the final RCDP.
The public can comment on either document by attending public meetings hosted by Trustee representatives and then submitting written comments or having their verbal comments be noted by a Trustee. If you are unable to attend the meeting, you may still submit written comments as long as they are received within the 30-day comment period. All comments should be submitted to the contact provided in the respective plan.
Notices of public involvement opportunities will be posted on this website on the Home page. The Trustees released the Final Damage Assessment Plan on April 30, 2014. The public comment period ended on January 13th, 2014 and comments were included as an addendum to the Final Damage Assessment Plan.
