Community Plan Advisory Committee is one of a number of ad hoc committees
established by Merced County for the University Community Plan and other
efforts. For a complete list of these committees please click here. The
following information describes the CPAC in greater detail.
The Community Plan Advisory Committee (CPAC) was established by the Merced County Board of Supervisors to play an advisory role in the drafting of the University Community Plan and Environmental Impact Report. The CPAC reviews work products generated by the County and its consultants, provides comments and opinions on the content of these documents, and helps guide the planning program by identifying alternative policy actions or solutions. The CPAC will function only for the duration of the University Community Plan preparation process, unless the Board desires to continue their participation into the Plan implementation phase. Please visit Current Events for a list of upcoming CPAC meetings.
The responsibilities of the CPAC are to help generate ideas and provide comments to achieve a responsible and creative University Community Plan. The CPAC will serve as a vehicle for achieving representative opinions and attitudes of landowners, interest groups, and stockholders interested in the University Community and University of California Merced collaborative planning efforts. The CPAC also provides a communication link on the progress of this planning effort to their representative organizations or interest groups.
