The Public Engagement Committee (PEC) serves as an advisory body to the Planning Commission regarding citizen involvement outreach strategies for proposed Comprehensive Plan major plan amendments, or upon request by the City Council, to the City regarding other matters of concern. The PEC fulfills the duties described in Statewide Planning Goal 1 for a committee for citizen involvement meets on an as-needed basis in order to:

  • Design and implement citizen involvement programs, which facilitate public involvement in
    major Comprehensive Plan and implementing land use ordinance revisions, and assure that
    such actions are based on factual and complete available information. At a minimum, such public involvement programs will provide for adequate notice on citizen involvement activities; advanced information on matters under consideration; and opportunities for citizen participation as determined by the PEC.
  • Inform the citizens of the Hillsboro planning area of the opportunity to participate in all phases of planning through the citizen involvement program.
  • Encourage and actively solicit citizen participation through a diverse and wide-ranging communication program.
  • Develop, through education, a citizenry capable of effective participation in the planning process.

Membership of the PEC shall be comprised of seven members including:

  • A Planning Commission liaison
  • A Hillsboro 2035 Oversight Committee liaison
  • At-large members from three Council wards (one each)
  • An at-large member representative of diversity in the community geographically and/or demographically, particularly for communities of color, low-income populations, and other under-served or under-represented groups.
