Some of the important changes that came out of those discussions include an addition of an executive summary, an annual report process to track how the county is doing compared to the objectives in the text, some additions to Community Corridor descriptions, and some stronger language about growth management.
Still up for discussion at Wednesday’s meeting is a decision on an annual amendment process, an idea championed by Commissioner Jack Fraley and opposed by staff.
Some suggestions from Commissioners that didn’t make it into the draft included a population target (outside the estimates included in the plan) and some specific growth controls. Staff commented that supervisors can indirectly control growth through votes on various applications that come before them, but they’re not allowed to directly control the growth of by-right development.
Read details about what was and wasn’t added to the draft in the attachments for Wednesday’s agenda here (scroll down to the September 30 block).
The meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. tonight in building F of the County Government Complex on Mounts Bay Road.
