The memo synthesizes the results of interviews conducted in the fall of 2020 with Mayor Schaaf, City Councilmember offices, the City Administrator, staff from City Departments and other local government agencies, and representatives from 41 community-based organizations (CBOs). This memorandum does not constitute a final nor rigid blueprint for the General Plan Update process. Rather, it could be used, as appropriate, to inform the General Plan Update process and in the development of a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the Plan services; however, the memorandum does not preemptively obligate any particular course of action and other practices and approaches may emerge over the course of the Update process for consideration and implementation.
