Development Support & Environmental Management Citizens User Group

 

Responsibility:
The purpose of this Focus Group is to collect stakeholder input and provide technical resources on proposed ordinances that impact growth management and other issues relating to current planning, development review, and environmental compliance as requested by the Board and staff.

The Group will develop and provide to the Board, through the Leon County Development Support & Environmental Management Department staff, input and technical guidance on growth environmental issues considered to be of priority interest. The Group will review and provide input and technical guidance on new ordinances or amendments as they relate to the Comprehensive Plan and implementing Land Development Regulation.
