Infrastructure Blue Ribbon Commission (IBRC)



THIS COMMISSION COMPLETED ITS WORK IN DECEMBER 2011 AND IS NO LONGER ACTIVE

IBRC Overview

Formation of the IBRC began in early 2010 and has resulted in the creation of a 17 member, City Council appointed citizen commission charged with advising the City Council on how Palo Alto’s infrastructure backlog might be reduced.

The IBRC will be advising the City Council on items such as how the infrastructure backlog should be prioritized, how a reduction of the infrastructure backlog can be financed, and how do Palo Alto’s project cost estimates compare with other jurisdictions. 

The IBRC is lead by Co-Chairs Ray Bacchetti and Leland Levy and is supported by City of Palo Alto staff including representatives from the City Manager’s Office, Public Works, and Administrative Services.
