Stakeholder Interviews

The Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) has invited a number of representatives of different Delaware groups to participate in an initial set of stakeholder interviews to help guide DNREC in developing the process it will use to develop regulations for Coastal Zone Conversion Permits.

Invitation Letter

Invitations were sent in an email from Susan E. Love, Climate and Sustainability Lead, Division of Climate, Coastal, & Energy.

Interviews will be conducted by an independent consulting firm. They will summarize the thoughts and opinions heard into a document with recommendations for DNREC to consider.  A report summarizing the findings will be distributed to participants and posted online when complete.
