Code Change Update from Commissioner Chloe Eudaly

From Office of Community and Civic Life: 

Yesterday, Commissioner Chloe Eudaly announced that she has decided to present the proposed code changes as a report on November 14. She indicated that this will allow Council more time to consider the facts and have a public conversation before taking it to a vote on the final package. “In making this announcement, I want to be very clear that I intend to see these policy changes through to completion in a timely manner. The changes proposed by Committee 3.96 reflect a transformative vision for the City’s approach to civic engagement and deserve fair consideration. We can no longer claim to believe in equity but refuse to update the code accordingly. However, heartfelt questions and concerns have been raised about what the new system may look like and how it will work—and I want to be able to answer them before advancing these changes.”
