Recommendation: Council review and discuss the report, accept public <br />input and provide staff general direction to prepare policy for future consideration and action. <br /> <br />Mr. Lashbrook gave a brief presentation outlining community involvement strategies for planned <br />communities and master plan areas. The presentation included developing a strategy; goal and <br />objective; how did we get here; existing process; available options; timing of public involvement; <br />methods for community involvement; what to do with public input; and recommendation. Mr. <br />Lashbrook stated that the State law included required elements for specific plans, but master plans <br />were locally defined. <br /> <br />Councilmember Susman questioned the existing process of notification for a Notice of Preparation. <br />Mr. Lashbrook replied that only affected parties were notified, but the process could be broadened <br />to include wider notice, notification in the newspaper, and earlier public input. <br /> <br />Councilmember Susman stated the problem with the existing process was that there was no <br />community buy-in early in the process, the community wanted to be involved.

Mr. Lashbrook replied that <br />it was difficult to get the community to attend the meetings and staff recommended the 2-3 <br />neighborhood workshops be scheduled with 2-3 members of the Council and Commission involved. <br />At that time they could review the process, proposal, criteria, and receive input.
