On July 28, 2020, the City Council created the ad-hoc Land Bank Revision Committee

The purpose of the ad hoc Open Space Land Bank Revision Committee (the “Committee”) shall be to present the City Council with proposed ordinance amendments relating to the Land Bank.

The Committee does not have the authority to commit City resources or to direct the work of City employees.

Unless its charge is extended by the City Council, the Committee shall be considered dissolved after its presentation of the proposed ordinance amendments at a meeting of the City Council.

Once members of the committee are appointed and begin to meet, all agendas and minutes of the committee will be posted here.  All meetings of the committee will be open to the public.
