Mayor to host neighborhood meeting for North End residents on Oct. 24

YUMA, Ariz. - Mayor of Yuma Douglas Nicholls invites residents to attend neighborhood meetings to be hosted in a variety of Yuma neighborhoods, with the first being held for Yuma's north end at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 24.

The purpose is to offer residents the opportunity to talk with Mayor Nicholls in their neighborhood at an after-hours time that is more accessible.

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.”

 The first neighborhood meeting will be held on Thursday, Oct. 24, 2019, at 5:30 p.m. in the John Morris Cottage in Carver Park, 385 S. 13th Avenue. Future meetings will be held throughout the City of Yuma, with locations to be announced at a future date.

 Comment cards will be available at the neighborhood meetings for residents who would like to ask a question or leave a comment anonymously.

 Reservations are not required. Questions regarding the event can be directed to Intergovernmental Affairs Coordinator Lucy Valencia via email at Lucy.Valencia@YumaAz.gov.
