Review past Focus Group meeting presentations (pdf) and summaries.
The six Focus Group will prepare a draft of the following eight General Plan elements:
Focus Groups will support the public process developing policy options for the public to consider and actions to implement the public’s vision. The Focus Groups include members of the consulting team, city staff, civic leaders, and local volunteers with interest or expertise in each team's topic.
Each Focus Group contributes members and expertise to the combined CORE Group which will concurrently address the Well Planned and Designed, Accessible and Sustainable Community. This Core Focus Group will consider West Covina’s approach to growth and preservation, incorporating perspectives from the other five groups. In addition to developing goals and policies for each element, the other five groups will also review and assess alternate land use, circulation, and infrastructure scenarios developed by the Core Focus Group.
The Focus Groups’ work occurs in three phases throughout the project.
Each topic will be introduced with an overarching goal that carries forward the vision, a description of issues needing resolution and methods for remedying them, and finally measurable policies and actions to achieve those solutions.
The General Plan will include a summary of actions, along with responsible party for implementing each action and time-frame for completion.
