Participating in a Council meeting can be daunting. The public is a vital part of the process, and the Town highly encourages you to speak out on issues facing the Town. The Guide to Town Council Meetings has been prepared to help take some of the mystery out of the public process.
2020 Council Mission Statement & Goals were unchanged
January 2020, Council provided some very specific direction regarding goals for the next 12 months and they are:
- Expand public engagement in the General Plan process beyond the GPAC using various input means including traditional forms like community workshops and digital forms like social media, web surveys and interactive maps. While this has always been the plan and has occurred to some degree, the GPAC (appropriately) has taken “center stage.” The priority is to expand and accelerate the community outreach portion, especially reaching new and less often engaged audiences. A General Plan Update progress report will accompany the release of the Land Use Economic Analysis by March 2020, and execute elements of the broader outreach for the General Plan by fall 2020. This is not intended to take away anything from the GPAC and its continued hard work and important role.
- Develop a series of innovative housing programs and projects (such as incentives for ADUs) so that Council can allocate approximately $1.5 million of the $2 million housing set-aside funds from the 2018-19 budget, and spend approximately half of that allocation by late summer/early fall 2020 prior to a possible housing related ballot measure. The ADU program details are due to Council February 25th with a brief description of the 2-4 programs that will follow. Staff and Council recognize that a number of important housing programs and projects have been accomplished and are continuing to be worked on.
- “Create Raving Fans,” meaning developing improved and expanded communication and marketing protocols and programs for the Town to allow residents and visitors to know of the successes, projects, programs, and activities that Town leadership and staff are engaged in. Of course, this means fundamentally continuing to do excellent work in all of the areas the Town engages, but it adds an element of communicating out those successes, community opportunities and on-going activities (and getting to know the people who do them). The initial efforts in this direction will begin this month with an informal committee of Department Heads convening with the Communications Director, but will be expanded as part of the 2020-2021 budget.
