Council District Project Review Committees

The City encourages public participation in the planning processes through several forums. One such forum is via City Council Project Review Committees which review entitlements in their respective district areas. During the committee meetings, members are presented with projects which they review to ensure that the proposed project(s) are compatible with the neighborhood. A senior planner from the Planning and Development Department acts as a staff liaison to each committee.

Due to COVID-19 pandemic regulations, all meetings are held virtually. Please contact the staff planner for meeting information details.

Current agendas.  For past agendas please contact the staff planner or the City Clerk’s office.
