Writing and Understanding Effective Staff Reports »

2023 Fall Conference, September 28, 2023 3:00 pm

Staff reports are one of the main ways that planning staff communicate with the City Council, Planning Commission, applicants, and the public. But are they communicating everything they need to be, and does the general public and Planning Commission understand them? After hours of research, review, and drafting, are staff reports doing what they should? This session will explore some of the best practices and review ideas for making staff reports more engaging, communicating the key points and being more accessible.
