From an April 20 City of Piedmont press release:

The City of Piedmont is looking for a few talented volunteers to serve on the Community Pool Advisory Committee. The PAC will leverage the experience, expertise, and insight of its members to provide support and recommendations to the Council and City staff, in an advisory role.

The efforts of the Community Pool Advisory Committee will be to offer advice throughout the design process and to serve as a conduit for the community’s voice in the design refinement and construction of the Piedmont Community Pool, specifically by:

• Assisting the project team to ensure the project meets community expectations.
• Communicating project progress to the community.
• Making recommendations to staff and the Council on how to balance any conflicting priorities against budget resources and community expectations.

The PAC will consist of five or seven community members including one current or former Recreation Commissioner. The Chair of the PAC will be appointed by the Council. It is expected that the PAC will meet quarterly or as needed throughout the project over a period of 24-36 months until the Community Pool project is complete.
