The Comprehensive Plan Oversight Committee (CPOC) was established by the Town
Board at its meeting of April 25, 2007.
In recommending the formation of a Comprehensive Plan Oversight Committee, the Executive Summary of the Comprehensive Plan (Comp Plan) simply states: "This committee would assist the Town Board and help guide the plan implementation effort." Additional background information is provided in Section 6 (Implementation and Action Plan) of the Comp Plan including the following:
"The Town Board should establish a Comprehensive Plan Oversight Committee to help guide the plan implementation effort. The Committee could include selected Town Staff, the Town Supervisor, the Chair of the Planning Board, the Chair of the Zoning Board, and other critical appointments... A Comprehensive Plan Oversight Committee could be the body that evaluates the plan regularly and could provide guidance to the Town Board regarding when it is appropriate to revisit the plan."
The Comprehensive Plan Oversight Committee (CPOC) was established by the Town Board at its meeting of April 25, 2007.
CPOC will hold four to six committee meetings and undertake the following activities:
- CPOC will review a Department of Economic Development and Planning prepared draft "report card" on comprehensive plan implementation progress using the executive summary of the comprehensive plan as a framework for review.
- The draft report card will be reviewed by CPOC at meetings scheduled during the months of June, July and August.
- In August, the committee will develop draft recommendations for consideration of the Town Board and hold a public meeting to obtain public input on the draft recommendations.
- A final report will be prepared and published in September 2007 to coincide with the two-year anniversary of the adoption of the Comp Plan.
