The purpose of the Como Lake Strategic Plan (CLSP) is to identify important Como Lake management issues through input from key stakeholder groups, prioritize the issues and associated goals, and identify implementation activities, including institutional and public roles, time frame and funding. Consulting services were provided by Emmons & Olivier Resources, Inc. and Lynch Associates to ensure a broad-based, participatory process for the development of this plan for future Como Lake management activities. Agency and public participation is documented in the Public Participation Section of this report. A listing of individuals, agencies and consultants who contributed to the development of the Como Lake Strategic Plan is also included in that section. The planning process consisted of identifying stakeholder concerns and issues with the lake, developing goals and expectations for the future of the lake and then developing strategies and implementation activities to meet the desired goals. The project was funded through a Board of Water and Soil Resources (BWSR) Challenge Grant to the Capitol Region Watershed District (CRWD). The grant period extended over two years ending June 2001. A local match consisting largely of in-kind services provided by District managers, staff, agencies and citizens was provided. The total project budget was $80,000.
