LEGAL REVIEW: Yes

ACTION: X INFORMATION:
The Board of Supervisors has recognized that successful implementation of the master plans being created for the County’s development areas depends on residents remaining fully and actively engaged after the plans are adopted. With the Crozet Master Plan as the model, specific opportunities are recognized for community leadership – in the words of the Plan, “community residents hold the distinct capacity to invigorate a place with a sense of unique identity.” The individual community advisory councils appointed by the Board of Supervisors are expected to serve as a primary vehicle by which those action items related to community leadership can be achieved. With adoption of the Pantops Master Plan scheduled for sometime this spring, staff is anxious to begin advertising and recruiting potential members for the Pantops Community Advisory Council (“PCAC”).
Goal 4: Effectively Manage the County’s Growth and Development.
Based on recommendations from the existing Crozet Community Advisory Council and a review of similar advisory bodies from other communities, staff has drafted formation guidelines for the PCAC (Attachment A) for consideration by the Board. Once the guidelines are approved by the Board, staff will advertise to fill the necessary appointments.
There will be no direct budget impact from establishing the PCAC – any funding requests that might be initiated by the PCAC would be presented to the Board through the regular budgeting process. Current staff will provide assistance to the committee.
Staff recommends that the Board review the proposed PCAC guidelines, make any changes it deems necessary, and approve them after making the changes.
