Lesson 4.1 – Adopt The New Code

Adopt The New Plan:

After developing the draft plan, your municipality’s legislative body (council members) have the opportunity to make any changes they deem necessary.  Remember: the new plan can only be adopted by your community’s legislative body (council members) in a properly-noticed public hearing.

Action Items:

  1. Provide formal public notice of the adoption meeting/hearing.  Be sure to include links to where copies of the draft plan can be obtained.
  2. Conduct the public hearing.  Gather final thoughts and comments before adoption.  Remember the legislative body must formally vote for its adoption.
  3. Once adopted, remove any unnecessary formatting (line numbers, unofficial headers/footers, page numbers, etc) before replacing any old plan materials with new ones.
  4. Reference CiviclinQ’s Sample Notice Language for Electronic Meetings resource in the “Materials” tab before conducting your public meetings/hearings online.
