Resolution Establishing the Citizen Committee for Implementing the Strategic Framework (B)
This item requests adoption of a resolution establishing a citizen advisory committee to assess and prioritize the community’s big ideas to support implementing the strategic plan framework.
On December 15th, 2016, the City Commission adopted the strategic plan framework, a lasting blueprint to guide us towards our best Gainesville, a New American City. Vital to a successful implementation of the strategic plan framework is the continued involvement of citizens and community stakeholders.
On February 2nd, 2017, the Commission directed staff to compose a Resolution establishing a citizen advisory committee to assess and prioritize the community’s big ideas to support implementing the Strategic Plan Framework. Per the Commission’s direction, the committee will consist of 14 citizen members, have a 60-day life-span, participate in staff-facilitated workshops, and provide 12-15 recommendations of big ideas for the Commission’s consideration during spring budget workshops.
This Resolution establishes a citizen committee and provides for its composition, responsibilities, operations and use of City resources.
The City Commission: 1) adopt the Resolution, and 2) appoint two citizen members per Commissioner.
