Mayor Emily Larson launches 2021 City Hall in the City series
[Duluth, MN] Mayor Emily Larson and City staff will be launching the 2021 City Hall in the City series that will begin later this month. The series is a continuation of the Mayor’s commitment to outreach and engages with Duluth residents through community meetings that are focused on providing residents with the opportunity to engage with the Mayor, city decisionmakers, and staff on a variety of topics, or on any questions that they may want to ask.
“I am excited to bring back City Hall in the City events,” Mayor Larson said. “These have always been a great way to connect with residents on issues that are important to them, in a way that feels accessible. The themes are built around topics that we know are critical for people across our community and the feedback and idea sharing makes a tangible difference in our shared outcomes. I’m eager to get back to the public facing work of our public service and know that our residents are eager to share their perspectives with me and city staff.”
The Mayor launched her listening series in 2016, and held events across the city. The 2021 listening sessions will each feature a topic that will include: street construction projects, community resources, City budget, housing, snow emergency plans, and more. These events also provide City staff with the opportunity to share a first-hand account of upcoming plans, information, and major initiatives happening in our community.
Due to the pandemic, the sessions are planned to be held virtually. All residents are welcome and encouraged to attend and participate in these one-hour sessions. The first two dates and themes have been planned and are outlined below. Future dates and themes will be provided at a later date.
- Tuesday, June 15 | 1:00 p.m. | Street Construction Projects | Online only
- Monday, June 28 | 11:30 a.m. | American Rescue Proposed Plan | Online only
