Metro is taking a deep look at how they do citizen engagement (can you say ‘Opt-in’) and as part of this effort they are forming “PERC”, the Public Engagement Review Committee.
If you’d like to apply to be part of this, head over here to get an application and more info. The deadline is August 24th.
Here’s the blurb:
The PERC is part of a multi-track strategy to ensure that Metro’s public involvement is effective, reaches diverse audiences and harnesses emerging best practices. In addition to the committee, Metro will convene public involvement peer group learning sessions, hold an annual stakeholder summit, conduct online surveys and develop an annual report of Metro’s public involvement practices.
The updated public engagement review process was adopted by the Metro Council in May following a two-year process to replace the Metro Committee for Citizen Involvement that previously oversaw the agency’s public engagement activity.
