This document is a handbook written for the Stafford Basin Pathways and Trails Community Advisory Committee to inform them of how to implement community outreach. The committee has stated that community outreach is a priority for them in the third component of their vision statement. Citizen involvement is Oregon's first statewide planning goal. All public agencies involved in planning must create a citizen involvement program. While the organization that is spearheading the project is a nonprofit, and not a government agency, it may wish to hold itself to the same standards. It may wish to do this especially if it hope to include its trails on jurisdictional park and trail plans. The Stafford Basin is a unique area, with a landscape and residents like few other places. The document recognizes these unique attributes and incorporates them into the strategy. The document should be used throughout the lifetime of the Stafford Basin Pathways and Trails Project. The project will not end with the adoption of a management plan, and neither should the outreach. The document has been written to serve as a useful reference, to be looked at from time to time over the entire duration of the project. Public outreach will both inform the people who use the basin about the project and allow them the opportunity to provide input on planning. Their input should be considered when completing the management plan. The document is organized into seven sections: vision statement, implementation team, background information, expert advice, the outreach strategy, how-to section, and a concluding section.
