Would your city like to stay informed and involved with what cities can do to protect and restore Puget Sound?

AWC in conjunction with the Puget Sound Partnership (PSP) is working to better coordinate efforts and recognize local contributions made toward the recovery of Puget Sound. In November, the PSP released the 2013 State of the Sound Report and the report specifically states that "coordination is the key to making Puget Sound healthy again." Cities are an identified "partner" of the PSP and progress is dependent on cities identifying specific needs and priorities that aim to restore the Puget Sound.

From the watershed level to agency boards, city elected officials and staff are working to carry out PSP Strategic Initiatives and certain Action Agenda items. Your expertise is being solicited to inform your colleagues and gather feedback regarding PSP activities and programs. AWC wants to ensure that city representatives are aware of the success and challenges that are experienced at the local level.

To achieve this level of coordination, AWC will be hosting quarterly, telephonic meetings for members who are interested in participating. Please send your name, title and e-mail address to Dave Catterson, davec@awcnet.org to let him know that you would like to be a part of the Puget Sound Cities Collective. PSCC members will receive updates via e-mail and the quarterly conference calls, and will have opportunities to provide input to city representatives who serve on the PSP’s Ecosystem Coordination Board.
