Envision Alachua Technical Advisory Group

Envision Alachua convened the Technical Advisory Group (TAG) to provide input into Phase II of Envision Alachua by helping Weyerhaeuser advance land use and conservation strategies for Weyerhaeuser lands in Alachua County. Weyerhaeuser evaluated TAG input, as it relates to the Phase I vision, for use in creating the 60,000+ acre sector plan, which was presented for review and comment by members of the Task Force and community at large before being submitted to Alachua County in December 2013 as part of the Envision Alachua Sector Plan application.

TAG members were asked to help:

  • Identify relevant policies, opportunities and guidelines associated with Weyerhaeuser lands in Alachua County; and
  • Identify issues and opportunities to be addressed in the Weyerhaeuser Lands Sector Plan.

Technical Advisory Group membership included representatives from agencies with regulatory and review authority over large-scale land use planning and policy decisions in Alachua County and the state. It also included individuals with specialized technical expertise in economics, conservation and community planning, as well as liaisons from the Task Force.

The TAG was composed of 19 members. For a list of TAG members, please click here.

Below are materials from the TAG meetings held during Phase 2 of Envision Alachua. Due to the nature of the TAG meetings, which encompassed five hours for each meeting, they were not video recorded. However, photographs capturing two of the meetings (Meetings #1 and #4) can be viewed in the Image Library.
