Neighborhood City Meet Ups

West Valley Councilmembers to meet with neighbors at Neighborhood Meetups

I had a very enjoyable Saturday morning visiting with residents at Hillsdale park.  This was the first of four scheduled meetings where residents can come in a relaxed atmosphere and converse with their elected representatives about what's going on in their neighborhood.  It is good to gain a solid perspective from many residents as we continue to take strides in economic and neighborhood development as well as work to bring about changes and improvements within our police department.  In the photo I am seen discussing the effectiveness and yet limitations of the graffiti wipes.

 Everyone is invited to attend and visit with City Council Members and City Staff.

In an effort to stay connected with residents and to share information about various City services, the West Valley City Council and the West Valley City Public Relations & Neighborhood Services Office will be hitting the road and setting up shop in four community parks this summer. The first stop was at Hillsdale Park in City Council District 1.

From 9:00 – 11:00 a.m., residents can meet with City staff, chat with elected officials and enjoy light refreshments and kids activities. Additionally, information about more than 20 City programs and services will be available for residents, and those interested in participating on City boards and committees can learn more and pick up application forms.

Neighborhood Meetups will take place each month through August as the staff visits each of the four City Council Districts:

  • District 2: June 8, Fairbourne Station Promenade, 2905 W. Lehman Ave. (3590 S.)
  • District 3: July 13, Centennial Park (near the west pavilion), 5415 W. 3100 S.
  • District 4: August 10, West View Park, 4100 S. 6000 W.
The West Valley Journal did a feature story on the meetups here:
