Executive Summary with Rationale and Impact:

Detailed description of the item and why we are doing it. This can be a separate attachment.

Current version of DRMC requires members of the Public Defender Commission to be residents of the City and County of Denver. This requirement has limited the potential commissioners and does not align with other commissions and/or committees in Denver which allow for broader metro-area members.
