Chico town officials and the college students are teaming up to help create a safer environment for the community. The Town and Gown group is a committee of students from Chico state, Butte college, and town groups such as the Chamber of Commerce, Chico Fire, Chico Police, and the City Council. On Monday's meeting they brainstormed ideas of what entities to contact to join their monthly meetings and also how to help the students interact with the town. Their main focus is to try and keep people busy by doing alternate programs during the party holidays and weekends when school is in session. Another meeting will be held next Monday in the municipal building with a more concise idea on how to kick off the new school year.
