Community Advisory Committees
Community Advisory Committees are a structured way for community members to share their opinions and perspectives, study issues, develop policy and/or program recommendations, and provide feedback regarding City initiatives in a focused, small group structure, and are thus an integral part of furthering public participation in government. Community Advisory Committees have community members as voting members. All meetings are publicly noticed and the public is welcome to attend the meetings. City Council members may attend advisory body meetings to observe, but not participate in the discussion, deliberation, or vote on any item within the subject matter jurisdiction of such bodies. Recommendations by Community Advisory Committees are forwarded to a City Council Sub-Committee or may be submitted directly to the City Council. However, community advisory committee recommendations may only be approved by a majority of the full City Council.
