Should the Alamo Region have a SuperMAC?
Original post made by Community Courtesy on Mar 18, 2009
The term "SuperMAC" applies to Municipal Advisory Councils established in large regions or in larger population areas. It is a slang term used among the members of such groups. In reality they are Regional Planning Councils with functional committees for various county services provided in the region. Pescadero CA , San Mateo County, is the most often reference to such a SuperMAC. As for establishing such a SuperMAC in Contra Costa County , the laws, rules and policies for establishing a regional planning commission would apply. CCC-BOS could create a SuperMAC as additional to their MAC laws, rules and policies based on the larger population of a region and a need for overall services management on a local/regional basis.
One could imagine such a regional planning council consolidating the various advisory committees and providing much needed volunteer coordination of services in our region to relieve administrative costs to the county.
