General Information on CPAC Role and Process
CPAC Role - The Community Planning Advisory Councils were created in the unincorporated County to facilitate and encourage direct citizen participation early in the planning process when it is easier for project proponents and decision-makers to respond to public concerns. The primary purpose of the CPAC is to gather community response to proposed projects. The projects reviewed range from broad policy questions that apply countywide, to small development projects of local interest. Entitlements reviewed include General Plan and Zoning Code amendments to plans, zoning matters and use permits.
CPAC Process - During a typical meeting, project applicants will present the project to the CPAC and audience. The council will ask questions and express any of their concerns. After, the audience will be asked for input on the project. General public response/specific concerns are recorded in the CPAC minutes and forwarded to Planning and Environmental Review for inclusion in the staff report to the hearing body(s).
CPAC Follow-Up - Citizens should be aware that CPAC minutes usually report simple public responses and do not provide detail. Therefore, citizens may want to provide input directly to the subsequent hearing body(s) through letters or public testimony during the hearing. Note: CPACs are advisory only and do not make final decisions. CPAC recommendations and neighborhood input, however, are carefully weighed by the final decision-making bodies.
