North Coast Resource Partnership Approach
The North Coast Resource Partnership (NCRP) approach to planning acknowledges and incorporates the unique issues, information and planning approaches of local areas (both watersheds and counties) within a framework that integrates local, regional and statewide priorities. This flexible and adaptive approach allows the NCRP to accomplish effective planning at a large scale while retaining and enhancing high-resolution data and planning at the local scale. The NCRP acts as a nexus between statewide and local planning efforts.
The NCRP consists of a collaborative partnership between the NCRP Policy Review Panel (PRP), the Technical Peer Review Committee (TPRC), project staff, consultants, and the stakeholders within the North Coast Region. With the exception of Modoc County, with one representative, the PRP consists of two representatives appointed by each County’s Board of Supervisors and three Tribal Representatives appointed by North Coast Tribes as outlined in the 'Tribal Representation Process' described in the NCIRWMP Memorandum of Mutual Understandings. The TPRC is comprised of technical experts also appointed by each County’s Board of Supervisors and Tribal representatives. The TPRC reviews and evaluates the development of the North Coast Integrated Regional Water Management Plan and proposed projects based on technical criteria and the PRP is the governing and decision-making body providing policy level direction and oversight for the NCRP planning process.
