In June 2010, the Land Conservation and Development Commission directed the Department of Land Conservation and Development to begin the rulemaking process to meet the legislative requirements outlined in House Bill 2001 and Senate Bill 1059. The Land Conservation and Development Commission appointed the Target Rulemaking Advisory Committee (TRAC), whose members represent local governments and other groups that will be affected by the proposed rule. The TRAC’s charge was to assist the Department of Land Conservation and Development and the Land Conservation and Development Commission in drafting a proposed rule. The TRAC met seven times between September 2010 and March 2011.
The TRAC members were:
