Residents sought to serve on weapons station advisory committee
The Concord City Council is seeking residents to serve on the 11-member Concord Naval Weapons Station Reuse Project Community Advisory Committee. The CAC will be an advisory body formed to provide input and encourage public participation during the development of a Specific Plan for the first phase of development of the former weapons station.
The deadline for applications is Sept. 23, extended beyond the Aug. 26 deadline initially announced. The City Council is scheduled to review applications and conduct interviews in October and make the CAC appointments in November. Three alternates will also be selected.
Appointments will be made using the following criteria: diversity and breadth of interest, broad representation of the community, geographic balance, familiarity with the adopted Reuse Area Plan, understanding of the CAC function and role, and commitment to Reuse Project goals and guiding principles. Terms will expire on December 31, 2018. The CAC will meet monthly.
CAC members will work with City staff and developer Lennar to apply the Reuse Project Goals and Guiding Principles, adopted Reuse Area Plan policies and accepted Term Sheet provisions in evaluating and commenting on potential Specific Plan alternatives or issues. The CAC shall also serve as a communication link between the Reuse Project and the community-at-large by assisting in targeting outreach to neighborhoods and interest groups, and promoting participation at workshops and public meetings.
Applications are available from the City's website at www.cityofconcord.org/BCApplications. For more information about the Concord Naval Weapons Station Reuse Project, visit www.concordreuseproject.org
