We want to hear from you! Vadnais Heights aims to be an inclusive and welcoming community. The City wants to be sure it effectively provides access to the programs and services it provides and offers the opportunity to engage with all people. Further, as the most accessible level of government, the City must be able to connect residents, businesses, and visitors, with programs and services provided outside of the City’s jurisdiction.
After discussion at June and July City Council meetings, the City Council approved the formation of a Community Engagement Committee. The goal of this committee will help the City better understand where there might be gaps in engagement and better understand how the City can be a resource to all residents of the community. Working with government entities outside the City’s purview, as well as local community organizations, the Community Engagement Committee will host a series of Community Conversations over the next several months. Following the series of Community Conversations, the Committee will compile a set of recommendations for the City Council to consider in 2021.
Residents interested in serving on the Community Engagement Committee, can send a Letter of Interest to Assistant City Administrator – Tim Sandvik, firstname.lastname@example.org. In your letter, please share your experience as a Vadnais Heights resident and what vision or goals you would have for working with the Community Engagement Committee. Letters are due by August 16, 2020. If you have questions, comments, or concerns, please contact Tim Sandvik through the City’s website, his email, or direct desk line at 651-204-6013.
