STRATEGIC PLANNING COMMITTEE
This committee was created by the Ballard District Council in 2008. Originally called the Neighborhood Plan Update Committee; this group of volunteers from diverse interests throughout the Ballard district, monitors emerging issues facing the Ballard district, and provides policy recommendation to the district council.
In 2009, the committee was renamed Strategic Planning Committee to reflect that the committee’s role was beyond simply to advise and advocate for updating Ballard’s neighborhood plan.
The committee has focused its attention in 2010 on the specific topic of transportation. However, the committee will continue to serve as a filter or triage on a variety of public policy and private development issues.
Committee chair is Catherine Weatbrook who serves on the district council representing the Crown Hill Business Association. Catherine can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
