On December 4, 2006 and January 30, 2007, the La Mesa City Council conducted its first town hall meetings. The community input received at both meetings established the foundation on which the council developed the two-year budget for fiscal years 2007-2009.
The council felt the town hall meeting format, which replaced the bi-annual Community Summit, was highly successful in finding out what residents think about their city as well as in understanding citizens’ concerns and their vision for La Mesa’s future.
Location & Timing of Meetings
As a result, the council holds two such meetings each year at local schools in various locations to cover all areas of the city. Information about the location, date and time of these meetings are posted on the Event Calendar.
2017 Town Hall Meetings
The 2017 Town Hall Meetings were held on January 31st at Lemon Avenue Elementary and February 2nd at Rolando Elementary. The input received from the community at both meetings was compiled and recorded. The Council and City staff rely on these forums as a basis for understanding citizen concern and as direction for action and planning in the community.
