Prior to the June 16, 2020 City Council Workshop, Mayor Gunderson asked staff to provide information on opportunities for the City increase communication and engagement efforts. Staff introduced the item with initial recommendations:

First Steps

  • Determine in what capacity should ongoing efforts be facilitated
  • Identify participants, including: elected official(s) (liaison), staff liaison(s), residents, business liaison(s), and community partners
  • Identify initial goals of the workgroup 
At current, City staff is connecting with community partners with the goal of facilitating a series of ‘Community Conversations’ through a committee. As those partners are identified, staff will include that information as a part of a report for Council consideration to establish formally approve a Community Engagement Committee. 

We want to hear from you! 

  • Do you have input for the process? 
  • Might you be interested in participating in future conversations? 
  • Would you be interested in formally serving on a committee? If not, do you have input for the committee make-up (including how to solicit participants)?
As these efforts are ongoing, we are looking for input! Contact Tim Sandvik, Assistant City Administrator, at or 651-204-6013 (direct) with any questions, comments, or concerns.
