The Measure P Citizens Oversight Committee (COC) will review and report on all Measure P expenditure plans, financial reports, and audits. The framework for the COC, which was outlined in the ballot measure, specifies that 11 of the COC members serve as “Designated Members.” Designated Members were nominated by local organizations and individuals such as the Chula Vista Chamber of Commerce, Chula Vista Youth Sports Council, Chula Vista Growth Management Oversight Commission, and the Chula Vista Police and Fire chiefs. The remaining five members are “At-Large Members” selected from a pool of applicants who applied directly to the City.
