Our 50-member volunteer board, supported by a staff of four, has an advisory role in the City’s land use review process, the annual budget, and the delivery of municipal services. The Board is an active participant in land use dispositions and local planning activities as the local government structure for participation in decision making for the community.

Responsibilities include synthesizing information to draft resolutions and testimony; representing the Board at select meetings; conducting research on planning and development issues; processing and responding to constituent concerns relating to services provided by municipal agencies; providing support to committee chairs; supervising office staff, fellows, interns, and volunteers; working with the District Manager on special projects; and performing administrative office functions.
