Community Engagement Forum- Thursday, April 18th


The City of Modesto will be hosting a Community Engagement Forum from 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm on Thursday, April 18, in the Downtown Plaza.  This event will focus on gathering community input on the future of Modesto as we work together to create The City of Modesto’s 2014-2017 Strategic Plan. 

 

This event is for the citizens of Modesto to have a say in shaping their community.  AND- the best part…..a positive community atmosphere, with food, music and purpose! Come join us for a great time, one that you don’t want to miss! Also, parking will be made available for FREE to those wishing to attend (the lot at the corner of K St & 11th as well as the 10th Street Parking Garage will be open for FREE parking). 

 

There will be a short presentation on the goals and priorities identified by the City Council, as well as, information obtained from community members who participated in the City Council Goal Setting Workshop, the Public Safety Forums held in December 2012 and January 2013 and City staff. 

 

The Community will have the opportunity to select the most critical services/priorities they feel should receive the greatest focus over the next 3 years.  A list of priorities and goals will be posted for those attending to select their top priorities as well as the ability to list new ideas and concepts for consideration. This will be the last forum held to obtain community input prior to the Council developing a new Strategic Plan. Don’t miss it!
