Problem Solver Meetings

The Problem Solver Network is an initiative to address community public realm issues across the city. PEMO brings together a diverse set of community stakeholders including: businesses and business district associations, neighborhood associations, non-profit and community organizations, and other stakeholders. The 14 Problem Solver areas meet every two weeks in online Problem Solver Meetings. By working together, the network addresses community challenges in a comprehensive, creative, and timely manner, while maintaining a strong sense of urgency and accountability.

The 30-minute agenda is grounded in partnership, accountability, and outcomes. Meetings are practical and solutions-oriented, focusing on reporting, follow-up, action, and new issues. City staff update community members on the status of issues from the previous meeting and district representatives report new problems and describe opportunities. On-the-ground improvements include removing nuisances while activating or stabilizing public spaces.
