ITEM
Consider a resolution amending the 2015-2019 Citizen Participation Plan adopted via Resolution No. 2372 on July 23, 2015.
PREFACE
This proposed resolution amends the 2015-2019 City’s Citizen Participation Plan (CPP), as applicable waivers have been made available to certain requirements through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act). The CPP describes the efforts that the City of Baytown (the "City") will take to encourage its residents to participate in developing plans that address the response to the coronavirus public health crisis.

Summary of Proposed Revisions to the Citizen Participation Plan includes:
  • Virtual hearings as an allowed method for citizen participation;
  • Updates to the types of declared disasters or state of emergency events such as the recent coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, that may necessitate expedited substantial amendments;
  • Amendments to Chapter VI – Amendments and/or Re-allocation of Funds; and
  • Amendments to Chapter IX – Public Hearings.
The amended 2015-2019 Citizen Participation Plan is attached.
