City of Reno hosts inaugural Community Engagement Fair
The City of Reno will hold its first ever Community Engagement Fair on Thursday, January 18, 2018 at 5 p.m. at the Pioneer Center for the Performing Arts.
The meet-and-greet style fair offers citizens an in-person opportunity to engage with their local government and learn about key city programs, provide input through surveys and discover how they can get involved with the City of Reno through a variety of commissions and boards.
Several City departments from Arts, Culture and Special Events to Fire and Police will set up booths in the Pioneer Center’s Exhibit Hall, which is located in the Lower Lobby.
“Communications and community engagement are cornerstones in our mission to be an open and transparent government,” Reno City Manager Sabra Newby said. “We encourage citizens to attend the fair, which provides people with a tangible opportunity to engage with City leadership, as well as the State of the City address, where they can hear about our accomplishments over the past year and some of the major opportunities we can capitalize on moving forward.”
The Community Engagement Fair will take place prior to the State of the City address, which occurs later in the evening on Thursday, January 18, 2018 at the Pioneer Center for the Performing Arts. Both events are free and open to the public.
