PA 23 EIS Study Groups

The PA 23 EIS study groups are a component of the overall public outreach effort for this project. Each study group serves as a technical advisory resource to the PA 23 EIS project team, and as a sub-committee to the PA 23 EIS Community Advisory Committee.

Three study groups have been organized for the PA 23 EIS project, and were developed by merging the seven study groups previously organized for the PA 23 Corridor Study as follows:

Cultural, Historical and Archaeological Resources, Farmland and Natural Resources

Economic, Finance, and Transportation Alternatives

Land Use and Growth Management, and Government

Membership

The PA 23 EIS study groups were formed by merging specific study groups organized previously for the PA 23 Corridor Study. In addition to representation from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PENNDOT) and the Lancaster County Planning Commission (LCPC), the study group membership is generally comprised of agency, citizen, and municipal representatives.

Meetings

The Cultural, Historical and Archaeological Resources, and Farmland and Natural Resources study group convened for the first time on November 13, 2001. This purpose of the meeting was to formally organize the study group, review the EIS process and the new role of the study group, and nominate a study group member to serve on the CAC. A second meeting was held in November 2002 to update the group on the status of the project and present the results from the August 2002 public meetings. From this point forward, the study group will meet on an as-need basis as requested by the PA 23 EIS project team or CAC.
