Town hall meeting set for March 29 at Woodland Jr. High

It’s town hall meeting time again. Well, almost.

City staff announced today that Mayor Lioneld Jordan will hold the first town hall meeting of the year at 7 p.m. March 29 inside Woodland Junior High School at 1 East Poplar Street.

Each of the mayor’s town hall meetings are scheduled in a different ward and this time Ward 2 is up to bat.

As always, everyone is encouraged to show up for an opportunity to learn more about our local government scene and ask questions about programs and policies of city government.

Mayor Jordan will be joined by several city department heads, including City Finance Director Paul Becker who will give updates on the economic forecast, City Engineer Chris Brown, who will discuss an update on the Road Bond Projects, and Sharon Crosson, who will provide an overview of the Parking Proposals for the Cultural & Entertainment Dickson Street Area.

Also set to speak are Parks and Recreation Director Connie Edmonston, who will discuss upcoming Park Programs, Development Services Director Jeremy Pate, who will discuss upcoming Form Based Code such as new zoning districts and building design standards, and Police Chief Greg Tabor and Fire Chief David Dayringer, who will be available for questions and answers related to public safety.

The last 30 minutes of the meeting will be devoted to questions from the audience. Not trivia questions. Just regular ones.
