If I provide testimony, how will my comments be considered?

This Proposed Draft has been published with a genuine invitation to you, your family, neighbors, colleagues and friends. Please provide feedback or call us if you have questions! While this proposal is the product of technical analysis and community wisdom, it will benefit from a robust public discussion among property owners, residential and commercial tenants, businesses, organizations and neighbors. Every comment has value, whether expressed by a single individual or numerous parties.

All testimony will be forwarded to the Planning and Sustainability Commission (PSC) to inform their recommendations about all elements of the Comprehensive Plan update. The PSC members will listen to and digest public comments, discuss issues among themselves, and ask planning staff to delve deeper into topics where there is conflicting testimony and multiple perspectives. This robust dialogue will conclude with a series of votes by the PSC on each component of the plan. The end result is a Recommended Draft for City Council to consider.
