Past Meeting Summaries

Focus Groups

Six Focus Groups allowed for community input into developing policy options to identify and implement the community’s vision. The Focus Groups included members of the consulting team, city staff, civic leaders, regional experts and local volunteers with interest or expertise in each team's topic. The purpose of the Focus Groups was to provide a public forum to identify assets, challenges and opportunities. To complete that role required public involvement from the community. 

Technical Advisory Committee

The Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) will include members from City Council, Planning Commission, and department heads to provide on-going and specific direction for the General Plan Update. The TAC will discuss and finalize work program objectives, project team member roles, civic engagement strategy, and list of resource team members.
