Attitudes of the Public and Citizen Advisory Committee Members Toward Land and Water Resources in the Maumee River Basin.
Taylor, Calvin Lee
The reported study was conducted to determine the extent to which active participants of a Citizen's Advisory Committee (CAC) were representative of the general public in land and water resource attitudes. All 39 members of the Maumee River Basin Level B CAC and a random sample of 400 Basin residents were given a Likert-type scale to measure their attitudes about land and water resources, the effectiveness of governmental leaders and agencies with these resources, and the role that citizens and the government should have in land and water resource decisions. Demographic data were also collected. Although the CAC members were not demographically reflective of the general public of the Basin, it was concluded that they were reflective of the public in terms of attitudes toward land and water resources and the role of government and the citizen in land and water resource decisions.
