As the end of the beginning, the the General Plan Update committee met on September 4, 2019 at the Wende Museum to take their oath of office, and introduce themselves to each other, taking on a task that will connect them for the next two years.
During the garden reception, a few poster boards were placed along the walkway for people to answer questions like “If You Could Change One Thing About Culver City, What Would it Be?” While some poster boards were thick with answers, others were sparse. When the crowd retreated into the museum to attend the meeting, it was with the small understanding that answers all the questions before them would take significant time and thought.
The twenty-one member committee will be working with the city council and the planning commission, discussing the changes and additions to be made to the General Plan. Policies on Housing, Land Use, Mobility, Recreation and Sustainability will all be set by the city at the end of the process.
