Local Government Advisory Committee

////Local Government Advisory Committee

The Alliance coordinates the work of Local Government Advisory Committee (LGAC), a group comprised of local government officials from across the watershed who have been appointed to the committee by their respective Governors or Mayor (in the case of the District). Created by the Chesapeake Executive Council in 1987, LGAC’s mission is to share the views and insights of local elected officials with state and federal decision-makers and to enhance the flow of information among local governments about the health and restoration of the Chesapeake Bay.  LGAC advises the Executive Council on how to effectively implement projects and engage the support of local governments to achieve the goals of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed Agreement.
