TOWN AND GOWN: MAYOR’S TOWN HALL MEETING TO BE HELD
AT THE UNIVERSITY OF ARKANSAS ON FEBRUARY 2
The City of Fayetteville and the University of Arkansas Associated Student Government are hosting a Mayor’s Town Hall Meeting to be held at the University of Arkansas at 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, February 2, 2011, in the School of Law Courtroom (room 240) located at 1045 W. Maple Street. Parking is available close to the Law School at the new parking deck on Garland Avenue.
Everyone is encouraged to attend and learn about local government issues of concern to you. University of Arkansas students, faculty, staff, and administration are particularly encouraged to attend.
Mayor Lioneld Jordan will be joined by several City Department Directors to provide information for your questions, issues, and/or concerns. This is an opportunity to ask any question of your city government in a relaxing forum, as well as learn about city projects, budget information, policies, events, and other information of interest.
Short presentations will be made by Mayor Jordan and a few city staff members at the beginning of the Town Hall Meeting on topics such as the new city paid parking plan in the Dickson Street Entertainment District; trail construction located at and around the University (such as the UA Farms Trail and the Oak Ridge Trail); the City’s 2030 plan and its importance to the University community; streamside protection; and ideas for student involvement in neighborhoods and an overview of activities in Fayetteville, such as those related to our 70 parks, three lakes, and the City’s active recreation program. These will be short presentations just to stimulate audience thinking about what information they want to know about their local government and to allow ample time for audience questions.
Most of the Town Hall Meeting will be dedicated to answering audience inquiries. Come and ask your questions directly to Mayor Lioneld Jordan and city department heads. They are interested in hearing from you! Refreshments will be provided by the University of Arkansas Associated Student Government.
