This is Mayor Gregerson’s fifth State of the City address.
At her 2014 swearing-in ceremony, Mayor Gregerson announced an Action Agenda of items that she intended to prioritize each year of her terms. By the end of 2018, nearly all of them have been accomplished. In her State of the City address, Mayor Gregerson will discuss her priorities for 2019.
“This year, my Action Agenda includes completing the Japanese Gulch Creek Daylighting Project to return the creek to its historical flow as a key step in improving the environment at the water’s edge,” said Mayor Gregerson. “I also believe that we should increase public safety funding for improved school safety, better response times to 911 calls and support for crime victims. Our Recreation Department staff will develop a high-level focus on the types of recreational programming the community values and will pay for; they will also conduct a senior needs assessment to identify the types of programming they want, what a dedicated senior center might look like, and how to pay for it. Finally, our beloved Farmer’s Market Board is seeking a new market manager and more volunteers to help ensure their future success. I encourage residents to contact them, step up and help our community bring the Farmer’s Market back in 2020.”
The public is invited, refreshments will be served. Participants who have a disability which may limit access to the State of the City address should contact the City at (425) 263-8018 at least three business days in advance of the meeting so that the City can arrange a reasonable accommodation.
