Guess who “generally” meets on a monthly and “likely” quarterly basis?

"Downtown Area Consolidated Plan Committees

The Core Team will be responsible for managing and directing the planning process.

Members represent major economic stakeholders
will thoroughly examine and develop specific draft proposals
and recommendations.

The group will also serve to lead advocacy efforts to implement projects from the plan into the future.

The Core Group will generally meet on a monthly basis.

DGI operates on a $1.1 million budget.

The money comes from three sources.

Half comes from a special 9-cent tax levied on downtown property owners;
(from taxes levied on customers, otherwise known as taxpayers)
30 percent is tax money
from the general fund of the city of Greensboro and Guilford County;
and 20 percent comes through fundraising.

Guess who “likely” meets quarterly?

Advisory Team

The Advisory Team will be responsible
 for bringing additional viewpoints and perspectives
 to the planning process.

The team will also be charged with communicating and engaging residents
from throughout the entire community about the planning effort.

As such, members represent a wide spectrum
 of direct and indirect stakeholders.

The Team will serve to evaluate draft recommendations
 and identify potential community concerns and issues.

The group will likely meet on a quarterly basis.
