MPAC Issues for 2021
Because of COVID, the 2021 Candidate "Breakfast" was accomplished by a zoom meeting. Issue groups met in zoom breakout rooms to interview the city council candidates.
Monitor City Council (standing committee) - Members of this committee attend (or monitor) every work session and meeting of the Arlington City Council and distribute summary reports to MPAC members.
Monitor Arlington Tomorrow Foundation (standing committee) - The plan for 2020 for this committee is to observe the Arlington Tomorrow Foundation grant award process to ensure MPAC is well informed and to impact the process as deemed necessary. They will attend as many ATF committee meetings as possible.
Public Art - (standing committee) - The goal of this committee is to increase awareness of current public art and encourage more public art in Arlington.
Pollinators/Environmental - The objective of the Pollinator Task Force is to increase citizen awareness of pollinator and environmental issues and their importance in our community.
Communication - Because Arlington no longer has a viable daily news media source for information many citizens depend on inaccurate and infrequent social media sites instead. This increases the risk of citizens not being informed about important issues and/or having inaccurate information. The goal of this committee is to learn how the City of Arlington Communication Office currently disseminates city information via its website and social media.
Economic Development - The goal of this committee is to study Arlington revitalization, redevelopment and reinvestment.
Keep Arlington Fed - Food insecurity in Arlington
