A Work Session to Discuss the Creation of and Funding of the Industrial, Commercial and Governmental Directed Assistance Review Team (ICGDART)


Topic Description:

Recently, Chairman Graham and Supervisor Downey met with the County Administrator, Director of the Department of Community Development, and his Division heads.  During the meeting, the Supervisors challenged the member of the Department of Community Development to “think out of the box” regarding ideas to help speed the review of industrial and community development projects.  The Department has suggested the establishment of an Industrial Commercial and Governmental Directed Assistance Review Team (ICGDART).  The purpose of the team is to provide start to finish services to business and government development applications with a proactive approach philosophy.  The annual cost to staff the program would be approximately $251,277, of which approximately one-half  would be raised by increased development fees.  The remaining $126,000 would be funded out of the General Fund.
