Former Steering Committee 2011-2013

The Frenchman Bay Planning Committee emerged from stakeholder meetings in 2010. The committee met regularly in late 2010 and 2011 to determine the next steps for creating the Frenchman Bay Plan. A number of committees formed from this group to take on particular tasks. The committee evolved into the Steering Committee, which served through January 2013.
