I was referring to the PDP process.  A PDP can be used at any time to
update an existing policy.

I had envisaged a process (which certainly should be clarified in the
report) that involves a fast track review process after the first round
(preferably against a clear set of measurable parameters), and then the
Council could decide to initiate a PDP process (again hopefully of a
duration of say 90 days) to make any policy adjustments needed, or the
staff could simply improve the implementation of the existing policy.
I recall some discussion of this in Marina Del Ray where we talked about
the need to have some measures of success and set out a clear review

We did actually build in such a review process for the transfers policy
- but this has been a bit resource constrained (probably mostly from the
volunteer side) and has not yet concluded.
