Rethink Housing Action Plan Committee
The purpose of the Rethink Housing Action Plan Advisory Committee is to review data, understand the need, participation in listening to the community outreach sessions, and help develop policies and strategies that promote housing opportunities for all. The Committee will recommend a Rethink Housing Action Plan to the Mayor and City Council.
The Committee will be support by staff, consultants, and other housing subject matter experts in the development of the Rethink Housing Action Plan.
Each member of the Committee will commit to attendance at least two virtual forums, 2 virtual “CHATS” and 4 virtual committee meetings between November 2020 and June 2021. Committee members will also need to reed advance materials prepared by staff in advance of committee meetings. Committee members must also agree to actively participate in committee discussions providing feedback to staff as the project progresses. This is a working group committee.
