The Maumee RAP is run from the offices of the Toledo Metropolitan Council of Governments (TMACOG).
The plan's design team identified a number of issues that need to be considered, including the RAP's interface with TMACOG's Trustees, OEPA, Ohio Department of Natural Resources, environmental groups and private businesses.
The project will use satellite technology to track combined sewer overflows and will conduct a stream inventory of erosion areas, areas with heavy sediment, sections prone to logjams, and habitat (TMACOG, 1996).
The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has recently prepared the Ohio Coastal Zone Management Program and sought a resolution of support from the RAP Implementation Committee, TMACOG, and other local coastal governments.
We received fifty usable responses from seven county-based agencies (two park districts, two soil and water conservation districts, one planning commission, one farm bureau, and one cooperative extension office), three cities, six municipal park departments or commissions, four villages, thirteen townships, one regional planning entity (TMACOG), four non-profit groups, five units of the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (including Natural Areas, Real Estate and Land Management, Wildlife, and Maumee Bay State Park) and one district office of the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency.
The most extensive responses came from organizations that are themselves significantly involved in open space issues (e.g., TMACOG and the Monroe County Planning Commission).
Planning and zoning commissions and local governments were mentioned next most frequently TMACOG was listed next, followed by other specific local boards and commissions.
