Resolution to Establish an Election Procedure for Chairperson and Vice Chairperson of the Art in Public Places Advisory Committee
Adopt Resolution No. 2021-064
The Art in Public Places Advisory Committee was created in 1984 along with the first adopted Art in Public Places Policy Manual. At the time of the Committee's creation City staff served as liaisons to this Committee. Later in 1988, the Committee was changed to be made solely of community members - one (1) at-large member and a member each from the Planning Commission and the Cultural Arts Commission. Since this time, the at-large member has unofficially served as the Chairperson of this Committee. In 2013, the Committee was expanded to also include a representative from the Parks, Recreation and Human Services Commission. 

The make-up of the Committee was most recently changed by City Council Resolution in February 2021. The current members are four (4) at-large members appointed by the full City Council, and one representative each from the Planning Commission, the Cultural Arts Commission and the Park, Recreation and Human Services Commission. 

Earlier this year, the Art in Public Places Committee had a discussion about creating a formal process for electing a Chair since one has never existed. The members unanimously supported a process by which the Committee would annually elect a Chair and Vice Chair and that those roles would be filled by the at-large members. This is due to the fact that the Commission representatives have the ability to serve as Chairperson or Vice Chairperson for their respective Commissions, and this will give a unique opportunity to the at-large members. The interest of the Committee would be to have this election take place each year following City Council's Commission and Committee appointment process. The first election of Chairperson and Vice Chairperson will likely occur in January or February 2022. 
Both the Art in Public Places Committee and Cultural Arts Commission supported the implementation of this election procedure. 
No General Fund impact.
