Section 2-309 Responsibilities of city boards and commissions in relation to visioning.

    (a)     Efficient use of resources. One goal of the visioning implementation process is to promote the efficient utilization of resources, both monetary and nonmonetary, and both governmental and nongovernmental, in accomplishing identified goals. Boards and commissions who are assigned specific responsibilities in the visioning implementation report should, in furtherance of this goal, collaborate with other boards and commissions and with nongovernmental entities as needed to promote the efficient utilization of resources.

    (b)     Transparency and citizen involvement. The visioning process has been built on the principles of inclusiveness, transparency and openness. Boards and commissions who are assigned specific responsibilities in the visioning implementation report should, in furtherance of these principles, seek to engage the public in their work in a manner consistent with the guidelines for convening, management, and coordination of citizen groups that are included in the implementation report approved by the city council, as such report may be amended from time to time.

    (c)     Cooperation with Columbia Vision Commission. Boards and commissions who are assigned specific responsibilities in the visioning implementation report should, in furtherance of those responsibilities, respond to requests for information that are made by the Columbia Vision Commission, and participate as requested by that commission in preparing recommendations for implementation tasks and in such public dialogues as may be convened relating to their responsibilities.
