Would you like to improve the City’s involvement of the community in government planning and decision-making? Are you interested in land use planning and policy-making? Do you see yourself as an advocate for community members who would like a stronger role in shaping the places they live, work and play?
We need you!
We’re looking for seven new members to join our Comprehensive Plan Community Involvement Committee.
Guided by the policies of Chapter 2 of the 2035 Comprehensive Plan, the CIC will advise staff on the design, implementation and evaluation of community involvement in land use and transportation planning projects and ongoing public engagement activities.
What does the CIC do? What does it not do?
- The CIC will review and advise City staff on their engagement with the public in land use and transportation planning projects and programs.
- The CIC does not review content of planning projects; it focuses on the community involvement process.
- The CIC will work with planning staff throughout the City to ensure that projects have strong community involvement practices.
- The CIC will maintain and update the Community Engagement Manual.
Application and selection process
The first seven members of the CIC were appointed in May 2018. This recruitment is the second round of staggered recruitment. The deadline for applications is August 15, 2019.
