Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Citizen Advisory Board

On August 26, 2020 during the City Commission Meeting details were presented on establishing a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Citizen Advisory Board.

Responsibilities of this Board are to make recommendations based upon the recognition and identification of the opportunities created by the growing diversity of the City’s population.

The Board duties are to advise on initiatives that will:

  • Promote appreciation.
  •  Acceptance and respect for cultural and ability differences.
  • Contribute to city services and programs being equitable and accessible for all.

The Board will make recommendations to the City Commission:

  • Recommend on ways to work with public and private stakeholders in the City to increase understanding of the diverse groups that make up the City.

The Board would focus on the best interests of the citizens and residents of the City by:

  • Strengthening community connections among diverse groups.
