Leadership_2Leadership Committee

The City and Community Builders have engaged a leadership committee composed of interested citizens, stakeholders, and elected and appointed officials that are located in or otherwise connected to East Sherman. The committee acts as a leadership and advisory body for the project. The committee will work closely with City, CDA 2030 and Community Builders staff.

The key roles of the Leadership Committee are to:

  • Assist with Community Engagement and Outreach
  • Assist with the East Sherman Avenue Master Plan
  • Support the City with Implementation

Below is a complete list of the community members originally serving on the Leadership Committee.  NOTE: The Leadership Committee will be reconvened in the fall of 2022 with some new members, to reflect new business and property owners within the district.
