Nossaman Partner Cloey Hewlett was mentioned in the Sacramento Bee article, "Advisory Panel to Measure Community Goals on Arena Project" regarding her appointment as Co-Chair of the newly created Sacramento First Community Advisory Council. The committee will also be co-chaired by City Councilman Allen Warren.
According to the article, the advisory committee was formed to gauge whether the Sacramento Kings arena construction project meets certain goals on local hiring, sustainability and other community impact standards, as well as to show the breadth of political support for the project. Committee members include the mayor's chief of staff and representatives of the arena's general contractor, Turner Construction, and project architect AECOM. The committee will meet every three months during the life of the project, starting in June. The announcement was made at a City Hall Press Conference by Mayor Kevin Johnson and Kings President Chris Granger.
The article noted that Ms. Hewlett, who represents the Kings, is considered an expert on diversity and small business contracting.
