The Task Force's work is to support the recovery and renewal of Mecklenburg County from the COVID-19 pandemic and shall be governed by the following guiding principles: (a) that recovery and renewal should not be a return to "business as usual"; (b) that recovery and renewal, above all, must be guided by an adherence to public health and scientific expertise, in order to assure the safety of those who live in our County; (c) that excellent public services, public investment and increased community resilience will form the most effective basis for recovery and renewal; and (d) that recovery and renewal must address issues of inequity that have been revealed by the impact of the crisis.
The Task Force shall examine and help address COVID-19 impact issues that are specific to employees, businesses, public health, education, the economy, and the overall well-being of the residents in Mecklenburg County, and shall strategize around policy considerations for the development of a comprehensive Recovery and Renewal Plan of Action (or a limited series of plans) to be presented and recommended to the Mecklenburg Board of County Commissioners for consideration in the following substantive areas: access to health care and eliminating health disparities; mental and emotional health; economic recovery, including help for small business; non-profit recovery and human services; education and childcare; working families and vulnerable populations; housing and homelessness; jobs and workforce development; food security; and, arts and culture. The action plan (or plans) shall include and incorporate recommendations from the County Manager's Business Roundtable.
There shall be twenty-three (23) task force members, one of which is the County Manager. Members who shall be appointed will have experience and/or involvement in the following substantive areas: providing access to health care and eliminating health disparities, mental and emotional health, economic recovery, including help for small business, non-profit recovery and human services, education and childcare, assisting working families and vulnerable populations, housing and homelessness, jobs and workforce development, addressing food security, and arts and culture. The Board of Commissioners will designate two co-chairs from the appointed membership. Members will serve for the duration of the Task Force. Persons serving must be a resident of Mecklenburg County.
