The City of Blue Springs is a community that prides itself on its diversity and its responsiveness to all citizens. In order to enhance the ability to educate and also respond to concerns that may be expressed related to gender, race, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, religious beliefs or disability, the City created the Blue Springs Human Relations Commission (HRC).
The mission of the Blue Springs Human Relations Commission is to foster the improvement of human relations among and between citizens of all cultural backgrounds, so as to provide all individuals with an equitable opportunity to grow and participate to the best of their ability in our economic, educational, political, and social systems.
Blue Springs is an inclusive community where all persons are accepted and valued.
Meetings of the Human Relations Commission are held on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m.
The Commission is comprised of seven community leaders from diverse backgrounds appointed by the Mayor and approved by the City Council to foster the improvement and shall serve staggered terms of three years each. All voting members shall be residents of Blue Springs and shall not have been convicted of a felony. Two students from the Blue Springs School District will be selected to serve on the commission as non-voting members.
