Summary and Final Tasks


In this lesson, you learned how to identify public opposition issues and how to respond to individual and group concerns. You developed a plan to be included in the siting process, that engages the public early on. You also developed a plan for how to engage the public at local meetings. To reach these goals, you researched the Internet for public participation plans and viewed links and documents presented in this lesson. The final outcome is a skill set that you can incorporate into your broader set of siting skills.

In Lesson 11, we will continue working on the case study by developing a slide presentation you can present to your peers, to your management, or to the public.
