One of the duties assigned to CAB is the responsibility of reviewing general plan and development projects that are proposed in the community. Therefore, it is very important that the members both know and understand planning and land use policy and law. The Planning and Building Dept. provides a course and manual that explains the definition and purpose of planning, and some important aspects of planning. See Training Manual
The Planning and Building Dept. has created a handbook for CAB members to use as a guide in providing important feedback and recommendations on issues to the Board of Supervisors, the Planning Commission and the Dept. of Planning and Building. It identifies what an advisory body is and its role in the planning process. It also offers suggestions on procedures and conduct of CAB. See Handbook.
