SUMMARY:††† Director Lehmanís appointee to the Community Advisory Committee (CAC), LandWatch of Monterey County, is not eligible to participate as they do not have a representative that lives within the District who can serve on the committee.Ms. Lehman has appointed the Monterey Alliance of Neighborhoods (Alliance) to replace LandWatch on the CAC.The representative for the Alliance will be Greg Pickens, who has confirmed that he does reside within the District boundaries.

RECOMMENDATION:†† Ratify the appointment of the Monterey Alliance of Neighborhoods to the CAC.

 

BACKGROUND:On January 25, 2007, the Board ratified a list of seven community organizations and seven community members to serve on the CAC.†† The charge to the CAC mandates that all persons who serve on the committee must reside within the District boundaries.†† The representative for LandWatch of Monterey County did not reside within the District boundaries.Chris Fitz, LandWatch Executive Director, suggested that one solution would be to have Janet Brennan represent the organization.Staff advised Mr. Fitz that Ms. Brennan represents the League of Women Voters on the CAC, and the committee charge prohibits her from representing two organizations.
