Throughout the planning of the Kivalina Road project, numerous meetings have been held with the Native Village of Kivalina Council, City of Kivalina Council, community of Kivalina, and Evacuation Road Steering Committee, many of which also included representatives from government agencies. These meetings provided valuable information, insight, and direction on how to proceed with the route analyses. By including both the community and the governmental agencies in the route selection process, the Native Village of Kivalina Council has built wide support for the project which only increases the chance of a successful project that will benefit the majority of the people affected.
