In July 2020, the City Council formally approved the formation of the Community Engagement Committee (CEC) and staff immediately began to solicit ‘Letters of Interest’ from potential participants. The goals of the Community Engagement Committee were to define where there might be gaps in current communication and engagement efforts, and to bring recommendations to Council on how to identify and eliminate gaps in communication and ensure the entire community has the opportunity to engage with the City.
After recruiting members, the CEC met: •November 18, 2020 •December 16, 2020 •January 20, 2021 •February 24, 2021 •March 10, 2021 •March 31, 2021* did not meet due to lacking quorum
Recommendations to City Council
The CEC brought forth several recommendations to the April 20, 2021 Council Workshop meeting for consideration. Staff is currently working on Council priorities and will reconvene the CEC as appropriate.
