In my community, we are considering whether we will implement a steering committee to diversify viewpoints for comprehensive plan preparation. Our ordinance states that the plan commission is charged with creation and approval of the comp plan. Any ideas on how to diplomatically bring a steering committee into the picture? The intent would be to include some representatives of the commission and ultimately bring the drafts back to the commission for their comment during each step of the way. If anyone has done something similar or has points for or against this approach, do share!
