Community Meetings Announced

Two employees working, text reads "Prioritizing our Tomorrow"

Concord residents and members of the business community are invited to participate in one of three scheduled Community Conversations to learn about what the City has done to address its immediate budget challenges and what can be done to maintain the local quality of life.

“Concord’s City Council wants to hear from the community,” said City Manager Valerie Barone. “It is important that Concord residents share their perspectives on how the City should address its long-term fiscal challenge and prioritize funding for the future.”

The meetings have been set for the following dates and locations, and were publicized through a postcard that was mailed to all Concord addresses as well as through social media.

Saturday, October 5
9 to 11:30 a.m.
Centre Concord, 5298 Clayton Road

Thursday, October 10
6:30 to 9 p.m.
Concord Senior Center, 2727 Parkside Circle

Wednesday, November 6
6:30 to 9 p.m.
Monument Crisis Center, 1990 Market Street

At these meetings, participants will hear from City leaders about the issues that are creating financial challenges. Attendees will also take part in a mock budgeting exercise that will explore the options for closing the projected gap, and they will be asked to share their opinions on community priorities.

Participant registration is appreciated, but not required. People can register at www.cityofconcord.org/budget or by phone, (925) 671-3009.

Information in Spanish about this initiative is available at www.cityofconcord.org/budgetSP
