About

The full HTPCC meets on a bi-monthly basis and convenes smaller project-driven committees and ad hoc workgroups as needed. No confidential information is discussed. All meetings are publicized in advance on this webpage and are open to the public. Attendance is recorded and reflected in each full meetings’ minutes, which are approved at the next full HTPCC meeting. Ex officio members within County government and the composition and number of public members are dictated by the Coordination Council’s founding legislation (CB 52-2019). Terms of the public members are staggered and vary in length and appointments are made as needed by the County Executive.
