The Government Transition Advisory Committee and City’s transition team will make recommendations to the 2025 City Council to help lay the groundwork for a collaborative and responsive council.

They are seeking community input to inform an initial draft of recommendations to be shared for public comment in June. Topics they are seeking feedback on include:

  • Accessing city council members
  • Staying informed about important topics
  • Expectations and hopes for future city council members’ engagement in their district
  • Considerations for future council meetings and council committees including how and when public input is received

All sessions offer the same content including an educational presentation followed by an hour of small group discussion. All sessions include interpretation in ASL and Spanish with additional languages upon request. 

How your input will be used

Your input will inform the Government Transition Advisory Committee’s and the Transition Team’s recommendations to the current council regarding the 2024/2025 budget and the 2025 city council. Before recommendations are finalized, a draft will be available for public comment in June.
