The Policy Statement includes Directive Policies for Local Trust Committees and Island Municipalities. These policies direct local trust committees and island municipalities to include certain types of policies and approaches in their official community plans and bylaws, unless explicit reasons are given to justify not doing so. Directive policies generally commence with the phrase “Local trust committees and island municipalities shall, in their official community plans and regulatory bylaws…” These policies generally strive for a harmonized regional approach while also leaving flexibility for more detailed, locally-appropriate implementation tools and strategies.
