In August of 2008, the City Council created the Commission for Citizen Involvement (CCI). The CCI is authorized to enhance the City’s citizen involvement efforts as they relate to the land use planning process. The CCI is directed to meet on a continuing and as needed basis to review and evaluate the City’s existing processes to ensure that citizens are informed and given appropriate opportunities to participate in the land use planning process. The City’s Planning Commissioners make up the membership of the CCI.
The stated purpose of the CCI is to evaluate the effectiveness of the City’s citizen involvement programs as they relate to land use planning and to advise and make recommendations to the City Council and city staff on how they can be improved upon.
The CCI is also authorized to meet with the City Council at least once per year with an update on its activities and to make any formal recommendations, if necessary. The City’s CCI satisfies the regulatory requirements for local governments under Statewide Planning Goal 1 and furthers the policies outlined in the City’s Comprehensive Plan.
