The letter, which is signed by Chamber President Steve Clark, recommends the committee be made up of:
Two members of the LGBT community
Two retail business representatives
Two real estate business representatives
Two members from the faith community
Two lawyers who practice civil rights law
The chamber also asks that no currently serving elected official serve on the committee and that Mayor Lioneld Jordan serve as chair of the committee.
The letter goes on to say the business community is "troubled by the lack of specific standards or definitions for legal terms being used by the city in the ordinance such as 'socioeconomic background' and 'physical characteristic'" along with other concerns they want addressed by this committee.
The Chamber of Commerce has asked the mayor to create this committee by Tuesday.
