IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

An eastern Iowa city is moving forward in building racial equity and diversity .

In February, the City Council of Iowa City approved a plan that outlined priorities and new initiatives the focusing on relationship building called the Equity Report Action Plane.

The one part of that plan developed by city leaders is to host listening posts in various locations throughout the year.

The first listening post will be held in Room A of the Iowa City Public Library on Thursday, May 7, from 4:00-5:30 PM.

Two Council Members will rotate at each listening post and those two Council Members will report back to the entire Council. Members of the community are encouraged to stop by and meet with Council representatives to discuss any community issue. No formal agenda or presentation is planned.

Other listening posts are planned in outlying areas later in the year.

For additional information, questions, or suggestions on future locations for listening posts please event contact City Clerk Marian Karr at Marian-Karr@iowa-city.org, 319-356-5041; or Equity Director Stefanie Bowers at Stefanie-Bowers@iowa-city.org, 319-356-5022.
