Land Use & Housing Committee

Committee Charge

On November 14, 2018, the CMAP Board approved changes to CMAP's committee structure to facilitate a swift transition from development and adoption of ON TO 2050 to action, thus assuring implementation of the plan. One result is the establishment of a singular Land Use & Housing Committee that will allow members to consider development of interconnected projects.

Committee Charge

The CMAP Land Use & Housing Committee works to:

  • Help staff identify and understand key regional trends, needs, and solutions related to housing and land use
  • Coordinate and prioritize policy positions, programs, and approaches between CMAP and other regional stakeholders
  • Serve as a discussion forum that promotes exchange on best practices and encourages their adoption
  • Provide advisory feedback to CMAP staff and the Coordinating Committee on work related to land use and housing
  • Assist in implementing ON TO 2050 throughout the region

2019 Meeting Dates

The Land Use & Housing Committee currently meets 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. on the second Tuesday of most months. The 2019 schedule is:

  • March 5
  • May 7
  • July 2
  • September 3
  • November 5
