Bowling Green City Council Monday night unanimously approved creation of a City-University Relations Commission.
First Ward Council Member Daniel Gordon, who heads council's Community Improvement Committee, which introduced the legislation, said several people played a part in the effort.
"I think it is a good product that should further our goals," Gordon said.
The 12-member commission will include four Bowling Green State University students to be appointed by the undergraduate and graduate student government associations; three BG residents, at least two of whom must reside east of Main Street to be appointed by the mayor; one member of city council to be appointed by the mayor; one rep appointed by a neighborhood association; one landlord, appointed by that community; one rep of the city, appointed by the mayor; and one rep of BGSU to be appointed by the BGSU president.
Terms will be staggered.
The commission will elect its officers, organize itself and meet at least once a month during the academic year at a regularly scheduled time, date and place.
The commission is intended as a venue for "authentic dialogue and civic discourse and education, to encourage community-wide investment in the city and campus affairs, and promote collaborative approaches to problem-solving through coordination of stakeholders."
The group can report and recommend or propose policy changes to the city and/or university as it deems necessary and appropriate in the interest of city-university relations.
