The Planning Commission working group and its role in the process


The Planning Commission Working Group (PCWG) is charged with aiding staff in the development and review of the Comprehensive Plan. The PCWG consists of all seven members of the Planning Commission, and a member of the Community Participation Team (CPT) who will citizen comments collected by the CPT along with staff’s research, statistics, and reports on the various sections of the Plan to develop policies and create the actual Plan text. Another important function of the PCWG is that they review the applications of landowners who wish to change the Land Use designation on their properties. After the PCWG has worked with staff to revise the text, the Planning Commission will recommend the updated Plan to the Board of Supervisors toward the conclusion of the process.
