Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee

At their March 14, 2022 meeting, the Town Council established the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee (DEI Committee).  The Committee will meet as often as it determines necessary to complete its work.

The DEI Committee is charged with the following objectives:

  • Develop and articulate the Town’s goals and expectations for a diverse, equitable, and inclusive community;
  • Evaluate the Comprehensive Plan, existing ordinances, master plans, goals, and policies for opportunities and barriers to achieving the Town’s DEI goals and expectations; and
  • Recommend action steps to the Council which may include guidance for developing the Comp Plan update, revisions to ordinances and policies, procedures for evaluating new ordinances and policies, establishing a standing DEI Committee, and other actions that will advance the Town’s efforts to achieve its DEI goals and expectations.
