What ideas do you have about policies and programs for the draft Natural Environment Element?
The City partnered with Peak Democracy – the leading platform provider of digital democracy and founders of Open City Hall – to develop a new online tool called the Digital Commenter, which allows the community to provide ideas and comments on each element of the Comprehensive Plan. The tool allows individuals to comment (and to comment on each other’s comments) to make for a more interactive dialogue. Choose the Quick version to provide input on each goal, or the Extended Version for an annotated version of the Element with background information and additional resources.
Next up is the Natural Environment Element which contains 8 goals, so add your ideas/comments today. Look for this symbol to comment on each goal. A symbol with a number in it means someone has already commented. You can add ideas or comment on what others have said. The deadline for submitting your comments via the Digital Commenter is 9 a.m. on Wednesday, November 9th. The comments will be forwarded to the CAC prior to the regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday, November 15th.
Thank you for your continued interest in the Comprehensive Plan Update. Visit www.paloaltocompplan.org for more information.
