Join a Neighborhood Conversation with Mayor John Marchione and the City Council

On Monday, May 23, 2016, City Council will host its second in a new series of neighborhood conversations. These forums are a casual and convenient way for residents to interact with their elected officials. Each meeting will be held in a different neighborhood venue, and the meetings will be open for residents to direct the topics—whether it’s a neighborhood issue or the vision for the City. 

“We were delighted that so many people came to connect at our first Neighborhood Conversation forum,” said Redmond City Council President Hank Margeson. “As we look for new ways to engage with the community, folks are eager to share and learn more about a variety of topics important to their neighborhood.” 

This forum will be held in the school gymnasium at Redmond Elementary in the Downtown neighborhood. Community members can connect with their neighbors and elected officials, learn about City projects, and write down questions for Council. There will be a reception at 6 pm, and the meeting will last from 6:30–7:30 pm. Council will answer questions, discuss current projects in the neighborhood, and listen to ideas and thoughts from the community. 

A roomful of people attended the inaugural (April 28, 2016) Neighborhood Conversation at Audubon Elementary. The meeting was entirely focused on questions from the residents and included everything from transportation and school overcrowding to housing and zoning issues.
