What is PACE? PACE, or, Program for Argyle Community Engagement, provides an opportunity for developers to request to host a Town Hall style meeting with community members to have an informal conversation regarding matters of interest. This is a voluntary program and is not a requirement for approval by the Town.
Generally, these forums are requested by the developer to discuss development cases. These forums provide a place to discuss proposed developments and hear feedback from residents before a case before the Planning and Zoning Commission or the Town Council. Town Staff do not participate in these as they are intended for interaction between the community and the developer.
A PACE Request Form can be completed if you have interest in holding a PACE meeting about a development project. PACE meetings are typically held at Town Hall on the first Thursday or third Tuesday of each month depending on facility and staff availability.
On the day of the PACE meeting, the applicant will give a brief overview or presentation of the topic at hand and the community will ask questions and provide feedback. This allows the applicant to answer any questions about the project or topic, and for concerns raised by the community.
