The purpose of inviting public comment via this website was to inform the project team of issues that are important to the members of public who write them, to raise questions about matters that are unclear, and to serve as a conduit for suggestions from the public on project matters. For comments to been of value to the project team, we recommended they contain ideas, suggestions, recommendations or experiences that relate to the outcome of the project.
In order to provide comments, you will be asked for your name. We encourage and expect a respectful dialogue where each person is comfortable to offer their ideas, where we all actively listen, where constructive criticism is welcomed, and through which we can further strengthen community and involvement in this process. Comments not adhering to this policy will be noted (as they may still contain good information), but may not be shared.
The comment collector link does include a question as to whether you wish your comment to be shared. If you answer no, it will not be shared on this website, but is still a part of the project record.
Leaving comments on individual blog posts is encouraged. If you wish to leave a comment, it will monitored prior to posting to ensure it adheres to the blog's comment policy.
