Schedule and Meeting Materials

 

The Policy Committee of the Planning Commission will be responsible for reviewing all proposed ordinance amendments, with periodic status updates to the Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors.  Each meeting will cover one or more sections of the Ordinance.  Members of the public are invited to attend these meetings, all materials will be posted to this website in advance of the meeting, and Planning Commission and Board work sessions will be broadcast on JCC TV48 and available on-demand.  Please continue to check this website and other County publications for additional information in the coming months.

 

Meeting materials will be added as they become available in advance of scheduled meetings.  Please note that Adobe Acrobat Reader is required to view meeting materials.  Click here to download this software for free (link to http://get.adobe.com/reader/).

 

Advisory: Please note that some pages of larger documents may not format on your computer screen or print correctly.  This may be more likely for pages where graphics are used (charts, graphs, pictures, etc.).  These formatting errors are likely due to limited memory or processing capacities, and may result in garbled or compressed text, missing images, or other problems.  If you experience any difficulties in viewing or printing any materials, please contact 757-253-6685 and we can provide you with a printed copy of the document(s) you wish to see.
