Any member of the public is welcome to attend a City-hosted community meeting. Below are ways we invite the public to participate and engage in their local government.

Examples of these community meetings are City planned construction projects neighborhood meetings, City Mobility Plan feedback sessions, Parks Master Plan meetings, etc. These community meetings do not have statutory requirements and are only informational sessions or to gather feedback from participants.

June 1, 2021 Community Meeting Update: Select Meetings May Be Hosted Virtually and In-Person.

To provide all members of the community with an option to attend and participate in their local government, community meetings may be hosted in-person in addition to a virtual format. The meeting type will be determined by the hosting City department and communicated to the community before the meeting is held. The City continues to recommend face coverings and social distancing for those who are not fully vaccinated that attend an in-person community meeting. 

Effective June 1, 2021: 

  • Community meetings that are hosted in-person will also be hosted virtually within two weeks. 
  • Community meetings that are hosted in a virtual format through the video-conferencing interface Zoom are not required to be held in-person.
