Advisory Groups and Management Boards
How to Provide
Feedback to the WTS Advisory Committee
are four ways to provide input to the WTS Advisory Committee.
At meetings. Advisory Committee
meetings are open to the public with designated time for public comment at each
meeting. The time available for public comment at meetings will be
limited by full Committee work agendas, so we ask that people keep their
comments to 2 minutes or less and understand that there may not be time for
everyone to speak.
On paper. Paper comment forms will
be available at each meeting and at the WDFW regional office.
Listening sessions. There will be
four listening sessions for the sole purpose of providing comments to the
Advisory Committee. One set of listening sessions will be early in the
Committee process, likely after their second meeting, the second set of
listening sessions will be later in the Committee process to give people a
chance to offer comments on Committee progress and ideas. The listening
sessions will be in the Yakima and Ellensburg areas.Stay tuned for specific dates, times, and
addition, the Committee recommendations and report will be made available for
public review and comment.
The Wenas Wildlife Area Target Shooting Advisory Committee will work to develop recommendations for how WDFW can best provide recreational target shooting opportunities on the Wenas Wildlife Area.
The group is comprised of people who represent diverse recreational and neighbor interests including affected landowners, hunters, target shooters, horseback riders, mountain bike riders, hikers, wildlife watchers, bird dog trainers, and motorized users.
The Advisory Committee will work to develop target shooting recommendations that: (1) are supported by the local communities; (2) reduce risk to Wildlife Area users and neighbors; (3) improve habitat protection; (4) reduce fire risks; (5) are financially attainable and manageable; (6) provide predictability for all users; and (7) adhere to clear and concise standards.
