Citizens Engagement Advisory Committee

What Is the Citizens Engagement Advisory Committee?
The Citizens Engagement Advisory Committee’s (CEAC) mission is to serve as the City’s extended communications arm by bridging the divide between the city administration and Berkley residents. 

Vision: The CEAC will raise public awareness on city services, promote the City of Berkley’s vision for an inclusive community, and will build trust between the community and the City.  As an outcome, the citizens of Berkley will: 

  • Be well informed about City initiatives and projects
  • Recognize the accessibility of Berkley’s services and City staff
  • Share accurate information from the City and clarify City initiatives

CEAC Duties:

  • Serve as a focus group for City initiatives and projects
  • Aid the City in identifying the harder-to-reach segments of our population
  • Assist community members to connect with City services and communications

Berkley Community Resources Group
The Citizens Engagement Advisory Committee has established this Facebook group on behalf of the City of Berkley.

This is a new group and is dedicated to helping each other. This group has been created for our Berkley residents, businesses, and community members to share resources and information SPECIFICALLY to help one another.

There are a few simple rules:
  1. Share a resource or tool for neighbors or community members or businesses can use.
  2. Share or list a need of yours or a friend or neighbor (no requests for cash). You can ask to borrow a tool, request assistance for yard cleanup, ask for a ride to an appointment, etc.
  3. Keep the comments positive.
Let’s show how we are #BerkleyStrong.
