Germanna-Wilderness Area Plan Steering Committee
About the Germanna-Wilderness Area Plan Steering Committee
In September 2013, the Board of Supervisors, Economic Development Authority, and Planning Commission acted to create the Route 3 Strategic Visioning Initiative Steering Committee, now known as the Germanna-Wilderness Area Plan Steering Committee, and appointed two of their members to serve as the Steering Committee's representatives. The inaugural meeting of the Steering Committee was held on Thursday, October 24, 2013.

The purpose of the Steering Committee was to serve as subject matter experts on the Route 3 Initiative for their respective entities and community. The Committee was designed to:

  • Take on specific projects related to the Initiative;
  • Serve as a conduit for the dissemination of information on topics and/or concepts;
  • Act as a liaison to the Board of Supervisors, Economic Development Authority, and Planning Commission; and
  • Serve as a leadership group to ensure continuity of effort and knowledge.
