III.                 WORKING TOGETHER.

 

Commission members and others provided information on their background and interest in planning.  Commission members were asked about what they would like to improve on.  Topics that appeared to have agreement on were:

 

         Clarity regarding criteria and keeping the commission and public focused on the criteria during land use hearings; potential training on use of criteria

         Need to find opportunities for policy discussion

         Need to explain to the public reasons for vote since discussion is often centered around only one part of a larger, complex project.

 

IV.                PERMIT PROCEDURES. 

 

David Stalheim presented an outline of potential changes to permit procedures.  The Commission had very little time for questions and discussion and agreed to continue the discussion with the full commission at the next available opportunity.

 

 

Respectfully submitted by,

Sue Yates, Executive Secretary
