Group Solutions RJW presented its recommendations resulting from meetings concerning African American quality of life in Austin to the Austin City Council during its Thursday, May 26, 2005 meeting.
The report will serve as a framework for an action plan to address quality of life issues that were raised during the meetings and in the City’s “African American Community Scorecard,” which identified disparities between African Americans when compared to other ethnic groups.
Six forums were conducted in April as a follow-up to that scorecard report. More than 700 individuals attended the public forums. Group Solutions’ recommendation also are based on hundreds of written comments received from the public last month.
