Steering Committee

At its public hearing on October 23, 2018, the CBJ Planning Commission approved 13 people for the Blueprint Downtown Steering Committee. The Blueprint team would like to thank all those that applied to be on the Steering Committee – it was a difficult task to select those chosen out of the many excellent applications.

The Committee members are:

  1. Betsy Brenneman
  2. Kirby Day
  3. Daniel Glidmann
  4. Michael Heumann
  5. Wayne Jensen
  6. Laura Martinson
  7. Lily Otsea (Youth Representative)
  8. Karena Perry
  9. Jill Ramiel
  10. Meilani Schijvens
  11. Patricia (Patty) Ware
  12. Christine Woll
  13. Ricardo Worl


The primary responsibility of the steering committee is to serve as the voice of the public, and the conscience of the plan; and when necessary makes recommendations on zoning changes, design standards, and other items pertinent to the planning initiative. Additionally, the steering committee may provide guidance to other CBJ Boards and Commissions. An ideal steering committee member must have a willingness and dedication to commit both time and energy to the steering committee; have an interest in planning and development, civic engagement, and the protection of the environment; and possess a willingness to encourage and accept input from residents and those affected by the actions made by the steering committee.
