Section 2-533 Visioning implementation.

    (a)    The office of the city manager shall complete the process of developing the initial draft implementation report that was provided for in the final vision report and shall present a draft of that report to the city council for review on or before March 31, 2009.  Drafts of the implementation report that are posted on the city’s website for public comment prior to that date shall also be forwarded to members of the city council for their review and comment.  The city council’s review and approval of that report will be scheduled to coincide with the city council’s review and approval of the budget for the following fiscal year.

    (b)    After approval of the initial implementation reports, the preparation of periodic updates, including periods of public comment, should be scheduled so that any update is received by the city council on or before March 31 of the applicable year which will allow for the review and approval of such update to be coordinated with the city’s budgeting process. Copies of drafts of updates to the implementation report that are presented for public comment shall also be provided to members of the city council for their review and comment at the same time as they are presented to the public for comment.

    (c)    The council acknowledges that visioning implementation has already begun and does not intend by setting the above timeline to delay or defer actions being taken to implement visioning by existing boards, commissions, departments, or other entities. Such actions are encouraged and boards and commissions that make recommendations for council action both prior to and following approval of the draft implementation report are encouraged to provide explanations of how visioning guided or influenced such recommendations.
