Project Review Committees

The City encourages public participation in the planning processes through several forums. One such forum is via Council District and Specific Plan Project Review Committees which review entitlements in their respective district or plan 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.

The committees are comprised of residents of the respective Council District or plan area and are led by a Chair and Co-chair. A planner from the Planning and Development Department acts as a staff liaison to each committee and is available to answer technical questions the committee may have

If you are interested in serving on a Project Review Committee, feel free to contact the office of your respective councilmember.

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.
