The Monument Avenue Commission's next phase of community engagement regarding the future of Confederate statues on Monument Avenue will take place between January and April of 2018. Commission members will attend meetings that focus on productive working sessions with engaged groups and residents and facilitated though different categories such as artistic and creative design, historic preservation and social justice.
Interested groups can submit a request for a meeting with a delegation of Commission members using the form below. The Commission will endeavor to meet all reasonable requests.
It should be noted that these are not Monument Avenue Commission meetings. Rather, they are meetings held by other organizations to which Commission members have been invited to attend, and are therefore subject to different requirements and protocols than public meetings sponsored by the Commission.
If more than two members of the Commission attend a group meeting, open meeting laws require the Commission to provide notice to the public of the date, time and location of the meeting. The group hosting the meeting must also open it to members of the public on a first-come, first-served basis as its meeting space allows. Groups are not required to provide additional space to accommodate more members of the public, but may do so at their discretion. In these meetings, the host organization sets the agenda and also decides whether to allow members of the public to participate.
Summaries of meetings attended by delegations of commission members will be provided to the full commission and made available to the public.
The public is invited to continue to submit their ideas and feedback via this page on the Commission's web site or send via regular mail to:
