Mr. Berg and Mr. Holland presented an overview of the three year initiative of the ICEMAP, including background, goals and objectives for each of the 11 installations within the ICEMAP geographic area (from West Virginia to Pennsylvania), and identification of encroachment threats.
A question was raised as to whether the JBA community planner would identify funds to work with the community to clear the Clear Zone. Mr. Holland responded that he is tasked with identifying a strategy and process as well as programmed funds.
The team would like the ICEMAP community information to be posted on M-NCPPC and/or County website.
Staff explained the public outreach strategy:
The active strategy is the specific message/focus: You are affected and how; the passive strategy comprises public education and general concepts of Safety inside and outside the APZs

Staff discussed a 5 month process; January-May for Public Outreach; each month will focus on a different topic on what the MIOZ proposes:
January- History (Know the Base)
Staff indicated they will need assistance from the committee to identify venues. Committee members indicated they would like the meetings near the Clear Zone(CZ) area and in or near the APZs.
Staff will engage different speakers to discuss each topic and ensure the information is available online. A committee member suggested putting the information on YouTube and cable television to educate the community.
A committee member asked if developers had been notified of the ILUC. Staff will produce a packet for developers to inform them of the impact areas and pass information to the builders. A committee member asked if the real estate disclosure was codified. Staff responded it will be in the MIOZ, it is currently voluntary.
The committee will request the Congressional delegation to assist with funding for clearing the CZ. The 11th Wing will look at partnerships and other resources to fund projects for relocations.
