Ward Meetings

   Strategic Ward Plans

In late 2015, Mayor Langfelder along with the City Aldermen, announced the complete schedule for the Strategic Ward Planning meetings. The Ward meetings, moderated by outside facilitators, were open forums where individuals and businesses shared their thoughts and views about the priorities for their specific Wards. The discussions covered topics including economic development; infrastructure; recreation; public safety; utilities; community resources; transportation; communications; housing development and beautification.

The City compiled the input into short-term and long-term plans for the City. To review all the ideas shared at the Fall 2015 Ward meetings click here.
