Project Unity subcommittee members are citizens invited to participate based on their demonstrated expertise and/or community involvement in one of the six subcommittee areas. The subcommittee team leaders are City of Tuscaloosa employees. Like the subcommittee members, they have considerable professional experience in their respective areas. As team leaders, they are responsible for facilitating their subcommittee’s final recommendations.
The purpose of Project UNITY is to ensure that underserved members of the Tuscaloosa community have equitable access to economic, educational, housing, and youth recreational opportunities. For the Community Policing component, the purpose is to address real and perceived disparities in policing while creating a bridge between the Tuscaloosa Police Department and our community.
Project UNITY recommendations are due on May 2, 2021.
The recommendations are submitted to the Mayor who will then present them to Tuscaloosa City Council for consideration.
We anticipate some of the Project UNITY recommendations will need sustained City Council discussion. It is our duty to continue to listen, learn, and adapt to ensure we have actionable recommendations for the council to consider.
Where possible, the City of Tuscaloosa is already taking action to carry out immediate recommendations. The May 2nd date was chosen to provide the subcommittees with adequate time to research, discuss, and refine ideas before submitting the final recommendations to the Mayor.
