Plan Area Teams and Public Participation
The County began to solicit public participation in the Update process in November and continued through the winter of 2012. The intent to encourage community involvement in the Plan Area Team working groups is to ensure that the planning documents that will be developed as part of the Update reflect the community’s vision.
The formation of these working groups is a component of the public outreach strategy developed for the Community Plan Update. The purpose of the four working groups is to help develop the zoning and design standards for each of the four Plan Areas identified in the Community Plan boundary. The first draft "Vision Statements" for each Plan Area are included on the Plan Area web pages available through the below links.
The team selections have been finalized (Plan Area Team members by interest area) and consist of nine community members from each of the four identified Plan Areas as shown below. The Plan Area web pages include the names of each Team member. The public is encouraged to contact County staff or Team members to convey comments, ask questions, and obtain information about this process. The public is encouraged to attend the Community Workshops to observe the Teams' progress during the Update process, as well as the Townhall meetings, North Tahoe Regional Advisory Council for updates on the Plan, as well as staff updates to the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency, Placer County Board of Supervisors, and Placer County Planning Commission regarding the planning process.
Drafts of working maps, zone district maps, vision statements, district standards and design guidelines are available on each Team's Plan Area pages:
