The Santa Ana River Trail and Parkway is managed by a Policy Advisory Group, or PAG. The PAG is made up of eight elected representatives from county and city government, an elected member of the Santa Ana Watershed Project Authority Commission, and a representative from the Wildlands Conservancy.
The PAG’s role is to monitor progress of the Santa Ana River Trail, discuss key issues, and help coordinate decision making across jurisdictional boundaries to ensure speedy completion of the Trail. Decisions are made by majority vote.
Once the Santa Ana River Trail and Parkway is completed, the PAG will revisit its purpose and need for its continuation.
The PAG group considers recommendations made by a Technical Advisory Committee in its decision making. The Technical Advisory Committee deals with logistical issues including development and installation of signage and the distribution of responsibilities associated with operations and maintenance and public safety.
