New Bedford Mayor Jon Mitchell and members of the community are set to sign an action plan this Wednesday that lays out steps members of a number of community organizations can take to help improve relations between them and the city.

It all stems from a forum that the Department of Justice held last November with members of the community following the Malcom Gracia shooting. Mayor Mitchell tells WBSM news about the plan.

Among the signers include the Community Economic Development Corporation, the NAACP, The Puerto Rican and Latin American Culture committee and the New Bedford Faith Community. The Mayor adds each organization that signs the plan will have to tackle issues in their own individual community's.
