Comprehensive Plan Citizen Advisory Committee
The Comprehensive Plan Citizen Advisory Committee (CPCAC) is a team representing the residents, businesses, neighborhoods, community organizations, educational institutions, and other stakeholders in Newport News. Appointed by the Planning Commission, the CPCAC will assist and guide Planning staff in developing the comprehensive plan. They will also review progress made on recommendations from the 2008 “Framework for the Future” to identify strategies and implementation actions to include in the plan update; develop a new vision statement, goals, and objectives; establish means to streamline the document and make it more user friendly; and provide direction for and input to the implementation matrix.
