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, are open forums where individuals and businesses share their thoughts and views about the priorities for their specific Wards. The discussions cover topics including economic development; infrastructure; recreation; public safety; utilities; community resources; transportation; communications; housing development and beautification.

These meetings have been extremely useful for city-elected officials and department heads, allowing an opportunity to hear the thoughts directly from the residents. Many of the items have been incorporated into city processes and helped plan for the upcoming budget process that takes place in January of every year.

Following are the highlights from the previous Ward Meetings.



2022-2023

Join Mayor Langfelder, Ward Aldermen and Alderwomen, and City personnel at this round of Ward Meetings happening in January 2023. Share your concerns, ideas, and learn about the upcoming City Budget and give your input.
