Sheehan said Roberts will speak along with elected officials from the city and Lane County.

The agenda includes small-group discussions on what he called "lawlessness" in the city's core.

"This has nothing to do with housing or homelessness," he said. "This is all about accountability and crime."

Sheehan said the meeting is open to the public, but only officials and business owners will be allowed to speak.

The meeting starts at 6 p.m. at RiverRidge Golf & Event Center, 3800 N. Delta Hwy.
