Civic Engagement Expands
The Town of Vail, in partnership with High Five Access Media, is expanding its regular video recordings of board and commission meetings with the addition of Vail Local Housing Authority proceedings. The Vail Local Housing Authority meets on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at 3 p.m. in the Town Council Chambers. The public is welcome to attend and participate in the meetings.
Once recorded, the Housing Authority meetings will be available for viewing on local cable Channel 5 and on demand from High Five Access Media at highfivemedia.org/town-vail.
“The importance of the work of the Vail Local Housing Authority has never been greater as we continue our shared efforts to address the housing needs of the Vail community,” said Steve Lindstrom, chair of the Vail Local Housing Authority. “Through our partnership with High Five Access Media, we intend to bring added transparency to our meetings and encourage broader community conversation and awareness to our housing challenges.”
In addition to the Housing Authority meetings, High Five Media Access records meetings of the Planning and Environmental Commission, Design Review Board and Vail Town Council. All meetings are held in the Vail Town Council Chambers. Agendas are available online.
High Five Access Media began covering Vail Town Council meetings in the 1990s and added live web streaming in 2011. These meetings are carried live on local cable and online on the first and third Tuesday of each month at highfivemedia.org. Recordings of the Planning and Environmental Commission and Design Review Board meetings began in October 2018 to advance the town council’s transparency goals.
High Five Access Media is a nonprofit, noncommercial, grassroots community access media center that is available on Comcast Channel 5 and anywhere, online. HFAM provides coverage of local government meetings, and offers free media education workshops each month to valley residents and nonprofits so they can learn about video production, check out video equipment for free, and express their ideas and advocate for a cause on cable television and the web.
