Over the past year, a Working Group on Legal Frameworks for
Public Participation has produced a model local ordinance for
public participation as a tool for local agencies to use in
committing to inclusive and authentic public participation in
local agency decision-making processes.
The ordinance is the subject of a session at the International
Municipal Lawyers Association session yesterday in San Francisco
and will soon be published by the National Civic League as part
of a larger package of articles and essays.
