Meeting Date: 12/07/2016  

SUBJECT MATTER:
Receive, consider and act upon an extension of the term for the Ad Hoc Economic Development Committee and the related appointments to the Committee;
FISCAL IMPACT:
None.
BACKGROUND:
The Woodlands Township Board primarily functions as a “committee of the whole” but will from time to time establish committees for specific issues.
 
Ad Hoc committees are considered to address specific issues, when appropriate, as determined by the Board. Ad Hoc committees make recommendations to be discussed and acted on by the full Township Board of Directors; the committee does not have any final decision-making authority. An Ad Hoc Committee, by definition, is temporary and established for a specific task or objective. Once the task is performed or the objective reached, the committee is dissolved. In the formation of an Ad Hoc Committee, a deadline may be set for the time in which they must complete the work, request an extension or end.
 
In 2013, the Township Board established the Ad Hoc Economic Development Committee. The purpose of this Board Committee has been to develop strategies regarding The Woodlands Township’s role in economic development for consideration by The Woodlands Township Board of Directors. Over the past several months, the Committee worked to identify, through a Request for Proposal process, a consultant for a Cultural Arts Study. The consultant was recommended to The Woodlands Township Board of Directors (Gensler / Webb Management Services) and was approved in fall 2016. The consultant will meet with the Board of Directors in January 2017.
 
The Committee has consisted of three Township Directors, as appointed by the Township Board Chair. Appointments are for the duration of the stated purpose, or until successors are assigned.
 
RECOMMENDATION:
At this point in time, the Board of Directors will need to determine if the Economic Development Committee is still relevant and necessary for Township economic development purposes, and if so, the structure and appointment of Directors.
