Mayor of Yuma Douglas Nicholls is hosting three more Community Conversations neighborhood meetings in a variety of Yuma zones in an effort to offer residents one more venue through which they can ask him any question, voice their concerns, engage in dialogue, or simply attend to participate by listening. Meetings are held at an after-hours time to be more accessible.
The next meeting will be held Monday, Nov. 18, at Pueblo Elementary School (2803 West 20th Street). It will begin at 5:30 p.m. and finish by 7 p.m. This meeting is focused on the neighborhood located between Avenue B and the west City limits, and south of 12th Street.
Then, there will be another community meeting on Thursday, Nov. 21, at Palmcroft Elementary School (901 W. Palmcroft Drive). This meeting will be for the neighborhood between 24th Street and County 14th Street, and between Avenue B and Avenue 4E.
The last community meeting of 2019 will be held at the Yuma Readiness Center, 5:30 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 5. This will be for all residents living on the east side of Avenue 3E.
The community will have the opportunity to ask questions, openly discuss how to make the Yuma community better, and engage in conversations with Mayor Nicholls about any issue critical to their neighborhood or community.
Translating assistance for Spanish speakers will be available at the neighborhood meetings for those who need it.
“Actively listening to the community’s input is key to being able to serve the community to the best of my ability,” said Mayor Douglas Nicholls. “I appreciate those who email, call, and come to City Council meetings. I hope to reach all parts of the community to connect with residents of all ages, occupations and neighborhoods.”
Comment cards will be available at the neighborhood meetings for residents who would like to ask a question or leave a comment anonymously.
