Regulations & Elections

The Peninsula Community Planning Board operates under the authority of the Ralph M. Brown Act which requires that meetings of the planning board are open and accessible to the public. In addition, Council Policy 600-24 "Standard Operating Procedures and Responsibilities of Recognized Community Planning Groups" and the PCPB bylaws govern the operations of the planning board. Several provisions of the bylaws constitute Brown Act requirements as outlined in the Policy. Amendments to Council Policy 600-24 will apply to the Peninsula Community Planning Board, even if individual boardsí bylaws are not required to be amended with parallel language.

In addition, the Administrative Guidelines provide explanations of the Policy's minimum standard operating procedures and responsibilities of this planning board. The latest version of Robert's Rules of Order is used when the Policy, the Administrative Guidelines, and the bylaws do not address an area of concern or interest.
