The DPAC (Downtown Plan Advisory Committee) meeting following the Wednesday night Open House is open to the public. The DPAC was appointed as a knowledgeable body that broadly represents a diversity of interests as well as the Davis community at large. The DPAC acts independently of the Planning Commission and City Council. DPAC members reflect their personal insights and preferences, based on their experiences as members of the community, as well as their perspectives related to organized group they represent.
Background from the Downtown Plan web page
The City of Davis is planning for the future of its downtown and looking to the community to participate in the conversation.
Throughout this planning process, community participation will be key in shaping future decisions. We will create a guide for long term development and infrastructure. We will evaluate existing development policies, codes and guidelines, and address recurring challenges to the development process. We will consider the many elements that can enhance quality of life in Davis.
Through this collaborative effort, we will consolidate the Downtown Vision to create the kind of place the community desires.
