There are four committees that involve over 100 members who are working collaboratively to engage in an inclusive and comprehensive regional planning process. The Steering Committee is the primary governing body of the planning process with East-West Gateway chairing the committee and serving as the fiscal agent of the grant. The Technical Planning, Public Engagement and Outcome Management committees each have specific tasks within the HUD-approved work plan that they are completing.
Communication among these committees is essential. The following are a few of the measures we have taken to ensure there is coordination among the many moving parts and individuals involved in the process:
- Volunteers sit on multiple committees in order to identify overlapping issues, concerns and projects
- East-West Gateway staff provides updates at committee meetings on the progress of other parts of the planning process
- The committee chairs reports quarterly to the Steering Committee and HUD
- Committee members, as well as others, remain up-to-date on the process through the newsletters and periodic updates posted on the RPSD website.
Depending on the goal and tasks of the committee, some are accepting new members while others have a set membership for the duration of the planning process. Follow the below links to find out more about the work of the committees:
