On Thursday, Feb. 4, at 6:30 p.m., the City of Roanoke will host its second Equity and Empowerment Advisory Board Meeting. The meeting will be hosted via Zoom and will be recorded and shared on the Equity and Empowerment webpage. Due to the recent increase and severity in COVID-19 cases in the City of Roanoke, out of an abundance of caution, the Equity and Empowerment Board has determined that temporary changes are necessary. As a result, Board Members will meet via electronic means. Members of the community wishing to address the Board will have an opportunity to give comments at the Board’s quarterly public hearings; the next public hearings will be held in March. The agenda for the meeting can be found here.
