Ready for Change sign

The City is committed to taking a proactive approach in its efforts to communicate with residents on important issues and to seek your feedback. But we also recognize that our newsletters and emails can get lost among the many other communications and marketing materials trying to get your attention. So we are trying something a little different. And a little more obvious!

“Ready for a Change?” signs will be appearing at specific sites as certain proposed development projects, park improvements or significant road construction projects are up for a review. Typically, these signs will be placed in the public right-of-way or in our parks two weeks in advance of a scheduled public meeting or hearing, or as a heads up to residents that a study process is in its beginning stages.
