NOTICE AND AGENDA
|1.||Call to Order|
The Flagstaff City Council humbly acknowledges the ancestral homelands of this area’s Indigenous nations and original stewards. These lands, still inhabited by Native descendants, border mountains sacred to Indigenous peoples. We honor them, their legacies, their traditions, and their continued contributions. We celebrate their past, present, and future generations who will forever know this place as home.
At this time, any member of the public may address the Commission on any subject within their jurisdiction that is not scheduled before the Commission on that day. Due to Open Meeting Laws, the Commission cannot discuss or act on items presented during this portion of the agenda. To address the Commission on an item that is on the agenda, please wait for the Chair to call for Public Comment at the time the item is heard. (Five minutes maximum per person)
|4.||APPROVAL OF MINUTES
February 1, 2023 Minutes will be available at the April 5, 2023 Regular Meeting.
|A.||Establish Local-Designated for Two Holidays Which Have Federal Recognition/Designation
The Commission of Diversity Awareness (CODA) would like to provide a presentation and discuss support of local-designation of two holidays which have federal recognition or designation. President Obama designated the day after Thanksgiving as “The Native American Heritage Day", Resolution of 2009. In 2021, Juneteenth National Independence Day was designated as a federal holiday. CODA wants to submit a FAIR request for the designation of these holidays by the City and explore possible partnership with the Indigenous Commission.
|A.||Federal EPA Grant Opportunity on Resilience Hub Concept
Jenna Ortega with the Sustainability Office will discuss a federal grant opportunity from the EPA. The City is applying for a grant to create Resilience Hubs, which are community-serving facilities that support residents in times of crisis while also providing year-round services. Ms. Ortega will describe the Resilience Hub concept and will seek feedback from Commissioners on how they think these hubs can best serve Flagstaff residents. If interested, Commissioners can learn more about resilience hubs here: http://resilience-hub.org/
