To provide community input to the City’s Planning & Land Use Management process. The PLUM Committee whenever possible will hear proposals for development, building, or land use issues that are planned within our boundaries.

This is the first stop for most developers once they have filed their requests with the City. Our job as a Neighborhood Council is to review the matter before the City hearing date and provide our recommendation on whether the WNC approves, rejects, or requests a modification to the request.
