Three public workshops will be conducted at key points throughout this project. Each workshop is anticipated to begin with an informal open house session. During the open house component, Project Team members will be available to talk with the public in a one-on-one, informal atmosphere. Following each open house session, a formal presentation and / or meeting activity will be conducted.
- Workshop #1. Project Initiation.
- Workshop #2. Interim Findings and Draft Recommendations.
- Workshop #3. Final Recommendations.
The first public workshop will explain the purpose and function of the JLUS and the nature of military operations at Fort Sill, introduce project participants, share the JLUS approach, and discuss the goals of the JLUS. This workshop will begin with a presentation to the public followed by an interactive working session where attendees will be invited and encouraged to share their input on potential compatibility issues. Attendees will be able to provide input through interactive audience response systems that allow for immediate response viewing and tracking, and they may engage in small group discussions with the JLUS team.
The purpose of this workshop will be to present the compatibility issues and draft recommendations. The workshop will involve a formal presentation and an interactive exercise to solicit input on the resolution of issue impacts and conflicts for the Fort Sill Regional JLUS. Matrix will also facilitate discussion of ideas about how best to resolve community conflicts in small groups of public attendees, and will give examples of draft recommendations to address them.
The purpose of the third public workshop will be to present the Public Draft JLUS and recommendations to attendees. The public and interested stakeholders in attendance will be encouraged to provide feedback either during the meeting via comment cards, submission of comments through the project website, or by email to the ASCOG JLUS Project Manager. As workshop dates and locations are set, information and meeting materials will be posted on this page. As the project progresses, links to the agendas and materials from previous meetings will be posted here for easy access and remain here for the duration of the project.
