    Comprehensive Plan Review Committee September 28 meeting

    About this Series:
    We know many people are interested in Plano's Comprehensive Plan Review process. While meetings may be difficult to record due to the work session format, we’ll do our best to share audio with you here on Inside Plano as a bonus content episode. The audio will be unedited unless there are sections that don’t make sense to broadcast. This means you might hear variations in sound levels and the audio will primarily capture the consultant team as they facilitate the committee’s work. Any agenda portions of the meeting edited out of the audio broadcast will be indicated in the show notes.
    About this Episode:
    This bonus episode contains the audio from the September 28, 2021 meeting of the Comprehensive Plan Review Committee.
