Residents can meet with city commissioners
Birmingham city commissioners are inviting residents to meet with them and provide input at a series of community participation workshops to help with strategic planning.
Residents are invited to attend the next strategic planning community participation workshop on Wednesday, September 14, at 6 p.m. at Baldwin Public Library, 300 W. Merrill Street, in the lower level Rotary Room.
Attendees will work with city commissioners in small break-out groups and have the opportunity to provide input throughout the duration of the workshop. Following a comprehensive and equitable evaluation of the city and community, the resulting plan, which is expected to be completed later this fall, will include strategic goals to direct the city's efforts and resources towards a clearly defined vision for its future.
A “putting it together” meeting will take place on Tuesday, October 11, at 7 p.m. in the Jeanne Lloyd Room at Baldwin Public Library. Mayor Therese Longe will call for a short public comment period at the end of this workshop to be sure the city commission has as much time as possible throughout the workshop to learn, explore, discuss and hear community input.
