  • Provide broad perspectives to help ensure the North Plains Comprehensive Plan represents diverse community needs and desires
  • Help guide technical work related to housing and economic development
  • Advise on and help implement community engagement activities
  • Inform and engage constituencies, communities and civic organizations
