Overview: The Council has expressed an interest in convening a focus group of stakeholders to review information on Town plans and facilities, as well as other timely issues in the area near the Southern Village Park and Ride Lot, and provide high-level input to the Council to help inform decisions regarding land use and infrastructure in this area.


Recommendation(s):
That the Council receive this information and determine how it would like to proceed. A resolution is attached if the Council wishes to formally convene a focus group.

Decision Points:
* Consider forming a Focus Group of stakeholders
* Review the charge of the Focus Group and proposed membership
* Consider an appropriate level of Town resources to support a focus group

Key Issues:
* A discussion about current interests in the area could inform future policy decisions by the Council
* A focused effort could provide timely input to Council

Fiscal Impact/Resources: Given the high level of active planning projects and limited resources, staff recommends providing logistical support and connecting the focus group with existing data and information. Allocating new or additional resources would require a re-evaluation of current planning projects.
