Neighborhood Listening Sessions

Release Date: 
04/27/2015

The City of Pendleton has scheduled three neighborhood listening sessions to meet with interested citizens over the City budget and how to improve the condition of aging infrastructure.  For more than a year, volunteers have met to examine the condition of roads and public buildings that require repair and/or updating and cannot be maintained within current budget limitations.  The committee has discussed various solutions including improved efficiencies, reduction in services, and increased revenues.  One outcome of this effort has been an acknowledgement of the need to give the public more opportunity to interact with staff and elected officials on these issues.

“The feedback we have received from the community suggests that we would all benefit by being able to interact with each other on these matters,” said City Manager Robb Corbett.

Three neighborhood meetings have been scheduled.  The first will be on April 29 at the Pendleton Convention Center.  On May 6, a session will be held at the Washington School Cafeteria.  The last scheduled meeting will be on May 13th at the McKay Creek School cafeteria.  All three meetings will start at 7 pm and are scheduled to last an hour.

The City of Pendleton is working every day to be the premier city in eastern Oregon.  For further questions about these meetings or other City related items please contact the City at 541-966-0201.
