The following information is from the City of Concord:
The City of Concord will be accepting applications through Friday, Feb. 15 from persons interested in serving on the newly established Downtown Specific Plan Ad Hoc Steering Committee. Preference will be given to persons residing or working in the downtown target area when selecting the three at-large members.
The role of this advisory committee is to provide broad-based public participation in the development of the Concord Downtown Specific Plan, a community planning effort funded by the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC), that will consider how best to direct the long-term and short-term development and improvement of the downtown area, specifically near the BART station.
In addition to the three at-large members, the committee will also include two City Council members, two Planning Commissioners, one Design Review Board member, one Todos Santos Business Association member and one Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce member. The committee is expected to meet monthly for approximately one year.
Application forms are available on the City’s website at www.cityofconcord.org. Applications may also be obtained from the City Clerk’s office, 1950 Parkside Drive, or requested by calling 925-671-3495.
