From the City of Cambridge, Jan. 13, 2017: City Manager Louis A. DePasquale is seeking volunteers to serve on the new City Manager’s Advisory Committee. Community input is a vital component of the decision-making process in Cambridge, and the city strives to engage and involve all stakeholders. In an effort to foster community collaboration and deepen the understanding of community issues, the city manager is forming this advisory committee.

The City Manager’s Advisory Committee will consist of 12 to 15 residents and stakeholders who will meet at least quarterly to discuss issues happening in the city, develop working relationships, work with organizations, bring different opinions to the table, and work to resolve problems in advance.

Selection of individuals to serve on the City Manager’s Advisory Committee will be based on their ability to represent the diversity of the Cambridge community. The final group of committed participants selected will be broadly representative of many backgrounds including: the small and local business community, large business community, nonprofit community, neighborhood associations, higher education, arts community, primary and secondary education, public health and human services, housing advocacy, faith community, new immigrants and under-represented communities, youth community, senior community, LGBTQIA community and mobility community (those involved with biking, transit and pedestrian issues).

Applicants should be Cambridge residents or individuals with a strong connection with the city.

For information, contact Lee Gianetti, director of communication and community relations, at (617) 349-3317 or [email protected]. Letters of interest, including résumé and/or applicable experience, can be sent via email or mail by the deadline of Feb. 17 to: City Manager Louis A. DePasquale, City of Cambridge, 795 Massachusetts Ave., Cambridge, MA 02139.
