Staff Report
SUMMARY AND RECOMMENDATIONS

Staff recommends the City Council approve and authorize the City Manager to Amend the Consulting Services Agreement with SEED Collaborative, Inc., to include its proposed scope of work to assist with Site Facilitation of the Steven Taylor Sanctity of Life Memorial Park project.

BACKGROUND

SEED Collaborative supports organizations that are working to create equitable and sustainable communities using the concept of Targeted Universalism (TU). TU entails establishing a universal goal and recognizing that to accomplish that goal, we must acknowledge that, as a result of structural inequities, different groups of people are situated differently within society. As a result, there will be different pathways of reaching the agreed upon goal.

SEED proposes to begin its work with the City of San Leandro by facilitating community outreach and engagement in a planning process to construct the Steven Taylor Sanctity of Life Park. This public space will be carefully designed and outreach coordinated with a landscape architect, to create a park area to bolster community understanding, reconciliation, and awareness of belonging among other sentiments, and to promote healing among residents of San Leandro.
