The creation of a Public Safety Advisory Board is one of the ideas that grew from community input and Council discussion in response to the killing of George Floyd. The Board will begin with reviewing public safety practices, with similar community input and draft frameworks anticipated for all other areas of city operations. This Board will be one component of the City’s Anti-Racism Action Plan.

What We Heard

In June, over 500 community members shared ideas for action with the Council. This shaped the Council's discussion about racial justice and city action.

In July and August, 132 community members provided feedback on the draft board proposal. A summary of the feedback is on the right under "Documents" and discussed at Council Meeting on August 11 which can be found under "Video Resources".

What's Next: Board members applications closed September 16, 2020. Staff are now reviewing each application for completeness and the community will have the opportunity to review and indicate their top two selections from September 21-30.
