Purpose

The purpose of the Encinitas Equity Committee is to help the City of Encinitas and Encinitas community create safe, healthy, accessible, and inclusive opportunities for everyone who lives, works and visits Encinitas. The committee will provide the forum for a diverse mix of voices to provide suggestions to the City of Encinitas to help plan, prioritize, manage and build projects and programs; frame how we work with our communities and public safety personnel; define how we recruit and develop our employees; guide our efforts to compile and interpret data and set up expectations for stakeholders and sub-contractors that work with us.

The Equity Committee will report to the City Council.

Responsibilities

The Equity Committee shall create an annual work plan and may make suggestions about policies, priorities, hiring and contracting practices and other recommendations on issues that affect Encinitas, including transportation, access to housing, land use, infrastructure, public safety, broadband, and social, racial and environmental justice issues.

Membership
