The Dublin City Council strongly believes in equity, diversity, and inclusion, and in an effort to bring these topics to the forefront, the City Council has established a Community Task Force to address these issues.
The Task Force will consist of nine (9) voting members with three (3) alternates. Alternates will be allowed to participate in all meetings of the Task Force. The City Council desires to ensure that Task Force membership maintains demographic diversity (i.e., gender, race, age, sexual orientation, etc.) as well as representation from:
- Homeowners and renters
- Business owners and property managers
- Senior Citizens
The Community Task Force is charged with reviewing and developing recommendations on items within the City’s purview, specifically the following:
- Training Curriculum
- Policies and Procedures
- Data Transparency and Context
- Public Engagement and Community Relations
- Diversity, Racial Equity, and Inclusion
- Boards and Commission Recruitment
- Inclusive, Equitable, and Accessible Programming and Events
- Community Agency Funding and Support
The term of the Task Force shall begin in December 2020 and will expire on June 30, 2021, with recommendations being made to the City Council in July 2021.
Members of the Task Force will be selected through an application and interview process. Applicants must live or work in Dublin. The Mayor will make all final appointments, subject to approval by the full City Council in November 2020. Currently, meetings are expected to take place on Zoom.
