Action Agenda priorities discussion set Feb. 16

An advisory board to the Puget Sound Partnership will discuss priorites for restoring and protecting Puget Sound at a Feb. 16 public meeting in Olympia.

The Ecosystem Coordination Board, made up of 27 representatives of government agencies and organizations across the region, will hold the daylong meeting starting at 9:30 a.m. in the General Administration (GA) Building auditorium, 210 11th Ave. S.W., Olympia. For information or special accommodations, contact Tammy Owings, special assistant, at 360.791.7069 or

The board will examine criteria necessary to prioritize items in the Partnership's draft 2012 Action Agenda, the blueprint more than 600 agencies, city and county governments, tribes, organizations and nonprofit groups use to protect and restore the Sound. The discussion is expected to take most of the meeting. Other items on the agenda include the 2012 work plan for the board and Partner updates. Dave Somers, Snohomish County Council member, is ECB chair.

Gov. Chris Gregoire and the Legislature established the Puget Sound Partnership to develop and implement an aggressive science-based prioritized agenda, spur action and ensure measurable success for restoring the health of Puget Sound by 2020. For more information, go online to
