Citizens Advisory Committee Kick-off Meeting - July 14, 2015
Join us from 5:30 - 8 p.m. on Tuesday, July 14, 2015 for the City of Palo Alto Citizens' Advisory Committee (CAC) kickoff meeting. The committee has been appointed by the City Manager to represent a diversity of interests and will be responsible for reviewing sections of the City's existing Comprehensive Plan, updates developed by the Planning & Transportation commission, supporting information, and public input received during and in advance of the meetings.
Based on this review, the CAC will provide recommendations to staff regarding updates and changes to policies and programs in the current Comprehensive Plan. The CAC will primarily be engaged in reviewing and commenting on (rather than writing) policy and program language and will also assist staff with the evaluation of "open sourced" public input and with synthesizing all materials and inputs as they review plan language (policies/programs) and proposed revisions.
The City Council will provide direction to the CAC regarding the Comprehensive Plan structure, including its vision statements and goals, as well as critical issues and desired additions/revisions. The CAC will incorporate this direction into their work, and will meet periodically with the City Council to discuss issues and questions.
