Meet with Chip

Once again we would like to invite all citizens to our monthly gathering at the Senior Center this next Tuesday, April 30 from 6 to 8 p.m.

We’ve had some good discussion about neighborhood clean-up, dealing with invasive species (like buckthorn), city future planning, local government (the good, the bad, and the ugly), round-abouts, college opportunities, food trucks, dog parks, and trail planning – to name a few.

It gives everyone an opportunity to bring their challenges, ideas, and opportunities to the attention of the council and neighbors without the formality of council meetings. It’s a relaxed conversation that helps us all get on the same page regarding the future of our city and region.

Especially enjoyable are the younger citizens who stop in and ask excellent questions, and bring bright ideas to the table. They seem to know that the design of our future is created by those who show up. We hope you’ll join us!
