  • What is the ACT? The advisory core team (ACT) is a workgroup of 10 – 15 community members who are passionate about their whole community and understand the importance of working with others. Advisory committee members should live, work or spend significant time in the neighborhood and represent a broad range of community interests.
  • ACT Roles. The Advisory Committee will collaborate with the city’s Community Development Team on issues such as helping to engage the wider community, reviewing community input, and creating recommendations that balance community interest. Members are expected to draw on input from the community as well as their own experiences.
  • ACT Selection. The ACT is advisory to the City. The City is soliciting applications and will conduct group interviews. We seek to have a committee that reflects the community’s composition – including those who are often not part of community planning efforts – as well as interests.
  • ACT Commitment. The ACT and City will work together for approximately a year to complete Delridge Action Plan. There will likely be monthly, 2-hour ACT meetings in addition to three large community events. Depending on interest, there may options to continue as part of an organization building and/or implementation phase of the action plan.
