Meeting Series #5 Goals and Policies Development (Task G)

County staff and the DC&E team will present the preliminary policy issues at a community workshop. At this workshop, DC&E will develop an interactive exercise to refine the policy issues and identify potential trade-offs that may arise because of potentially inconsistent policies. Based on input at the workshop, County staff and DC&E will then develop recommended goals and policies. These preliminary goals and policies will then be presented to the Citizens Advisory Committee for their input and feedback, followed up by the Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors. Some policies may be carried over from existing General Plan documents, while others will be new policies drafted by DC&E. All policies will comply with the Guiding Principles and will be intended to implement the selected preferred alternative.

In addition to discussing goals and policies, County staff and DC&E will present the Draft Outline of the General Plan to the Citizens Advisory Committee, the Planning Commission and the Board of Supervisors for their input and feedback. Following Meeting Series #5, County staff and DC&E will hold up to two additional meetings each with the Planning Commission and the Board of Supervisors to review and refine the recommended goals and policies.
