Building the Momentum
A celebratory event designed to stimulate thought, share a laugh and share the results of the first part of the Council Initiative on Public Engagement.
We started the conversation on public engagement in our City through a Discussion Guide and 20 internal and external workshops.
Join us to celebrate everyone's contribution, and to share what was said about public engagement in our City and where we need to focus our efforts.
This Saturday afternoon event is designed to share a laugh, stimulate thought, and plan for the next steps in improving public engagement in our city.
Join us. It's going to be great.
