Community Engagement

The mission of our Community Engagement Specialist is to create a stronger two-way conversation between the public and City government. Michelle Leise, partnering with a wide variety of City departments, listens to community members and gathers input to ensure residents are at the core of how the City works and operates. This position was created in August 2017.

Key Goals in 2018:

  • Improve how the City communicates with community members;
  • Increase and enhance the way the City holds meetings and/or gatherings with residents;
  • Strengthen the ways community members can give input into City plans and policies.
