Last Community Action Planning event will be held Aug. 19
SALISBURY — After four Community Action Planning sessions in April and one in May, the city is planning a second follow-up session Saturday.
The first follow-up meeting was held Monday.
Linda McElroy, the city’s communications director, said the public is welcome, including those who have not attended previous meetings.
“If residents truly want to be engaged, this has to be a community-led effort,” McElroy said in an email.
People who attend Saturday’s meeting will be eligible to join an action team focused on one of the four main objectives: improved public safety, youth activities, community relations and workforce development.
McElroy said the teams will begin meeting next month and report to the City Council once every three months to “make sure we are moving the needle.”
She said the teams will get support in the form of resources and idea sharing from city staff members.
“We need people to attend and join teams,” McElroy said. “Moving Salisbury forward cannot be a solely city-led function. The future of our youth, jobs, public safety and community relations should be top priorities for all citizens.”
The meeting will be at 10 a.m. Saturday in City Hall, 217 S. Main St.
McElroy said it should last about an hour and a half.
