institutions is the best way to achieve our goals; local gov't

management, and in enacting and enforcing conservation and
land-use laws; regional and long-term perspectives should be
considered when judging the possible effects of any alterations
in the natural environment.
its mission, OCCA will work in cooperation with both public and

protect the county's water, air, soils, wildlife and natural
landscapes for current and future generations. As need be, OCCA
