Dear Local Business Owner or Community Member:

The City of High Point is excited to share an upcoming engagement opportunity. On April 17, 2023, City Council approved a recommendation from staff to conduct a disparity study. As a result, the City of High Point has contracted Griffin & Strong, P.C. to determine the City's utilization of Minority, Women, and Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (MWDBEs) compared to their availability in relevant industry categories. Additionally, the consultants will provide the City with recommendations and programmatic remedies as needed to address, reduce and/or eliminate any identified barriers.

The study team will be reaching out to businesses and community members to gather important data through a variety of methods including but not limited to, interviewing local business owners and community members about their experiences doing business or attempting to do business with the City of High Point. While your participation is not required, it is vital to making this a successful initiative.

We believe that the more information this study gathers about your experiences, the better the City will be able to serve all businesses in our marketplace.

We appreciate your support in this important effort and your continued investment in High Point.


Tasha Logan Ford

City Manager
