"... The goal of this process would be to take residents out of their traditional role as passive observers of city decisions or participants who try to intervene at the eleventh hour to halt or modify policies and ordinances they do not support that are advocated by city staff, the mayor or City Council.
Proposals so far include task forces on:
- the arts,
- economic development,
- youth and education,
- police accountability and public safety,
- housing and tenant rights,
- protections and encouragement of small businesses,
- increased transparency and public involvement in city government and
- creating opportunities for the formerly incarcerated.
Participants would volunteer for a task force in which they have interest and expertise. ...
... Anyone interested in participating in a task force can send their name and area of interest to oaktaskforce [at] gmail.com"
