Council Goal Setting

From: domainremoved <Glen>

A suggestion to consider for the Council goal setting workshop:

Provide Alex with a summary of our goal priorities that were established at our goal setting workshop. Preface it by indicating the Chamber is committed to supporting economic development as a priority and are committed to advocating for existing business in the community. The Chamber is committed to enhancing our partnership with the city on behalf of existing businesses and advocating for new businesses coming to the city.

Also consider indicating that the Chamber (if we are) is willing to ASSIST the city with the Block Party but will need a firm financial commitment in order to carry this out. This was discussed at our workshop and the chamber determined that our current funding does not allow us to absorb the cost of the BP. We have the volunteers and leadership but need funding in advance of the June event.
I would suggest recommending to Alex that if we handle the BP this year that the Chamber committee meet with city staff to go over the planning to ensure we are on the same page and we know what the city is committed to do and what we are committed to do.

These are my thoughts for the Council workshop agenda

Hope this helps
