General Plan Advisory Committee

The City of La Verne has formed a General Plan Advisory Committee (GPAC) to advise Staff, Planning Commission, and the City Council on the City’s comprehensive General Plan Update. The GPAC is comprised of community representatives who will serve as liaisons and project ambassadors and meet generally once a month for ten months beginning in May 2018.

The final meeting of the La Verne General Plan Advisory Committee took place on Wednesday July 31, 2019. This meeting represented the conclusion of the GPAC’s role in advisory City Staff and the Consultant Team on the goals, objectives, and priorities for the La Verne community. The GPAC members have dedicated themselves to representing the La Verne community and the entire project tea is deeply appreciative of their service to the General Plan and the City of La Verne.
