Community Advisory Committee (CAC) - Specific Plan

Purpose of the CAC

Formed at the end of 2016, the Community Advisory Committee (CAC) is modeled after the original CAC formed during earlier phases of the Concord Reuse Project. The purpose of the CAC is to serve as an advisory body to provide input and encourage public participation during the process of creating a Specific Plan for development of the former weapons station. Learn more about the Specific Plan.

CAC members will work with City staff and developer Lennar to apply the Reuse Project Goals and Guiding Principles, adopted Reuse Area Plan policies and accepted Term Sheet provisions in evaluating and commenting on potential Specific Plan alternatives or issues. The CAC will also serve as a communication link between the Reuse Project and the community-at-large by assisting in targeting outreach to neighborhoods and interest groups, and promoting attendance at workshops and public meetings.
