The Steering Committee of eight individuals was put together by community organizations in March 2019 at a community town hall. The Committee was meant to be an interim committee for three months and was to report back to the community on how to move the community centre project forward.
For the following three reasons, the Committee has decided to incorporate with the current eight members of the Steering Committee as “First Directors” in order to advance critical processes of the community centre. This idea was presented at the community town hall in August 2019 and it was accepted given the progress the Committee has made to date.
The Committee knows that determining the governing structure for the community centre is an important topic of the project for the community. The Committee understands it will take time and meaningful discussions with individuals and organizations of our community. The Committee plans on spending May to August of 2020 consulting with the community on a governance structure for the community centre. The Committee will do this by meeting directly with community organizations, hosting public townhalls, and online through our website. If you have other ideas on how the Committee can engage the community on this topic, please let email firstname.lastname@example.org. The Committee looks forward to the robust discussion that will take place on this topic next year and putting together a representative governance structure for the community centre.
