Community Forums coming your way!

In April 2017, Norwalk City Council established community meetings to give residents an opportunity to be heard in their "own backyards," at easily accessible neighborhood locations.  As part of the city's effort to strengthen community connections, these meetings were offered each quarter to provide an open forum for the people of Norwalk to share concerns, questions and comments.

Community Forum 6

The Community Forums are special City Council meetings open to the public, with a more relaxed format than regular meetings.  To make it more convenient for residents to attend, each meeting is held at a different area of Norwalk.

Community Forum - St John of God

The first Community Forum was held on May 9 at New River Elementary School. The second meeting in the series took place on August 22 at Sanchez Elementary School, with the third at Moffitt Elementary on November 14 and the fourth at Lakeland Elementary School on February 27. The most recent forum was held at St. John of God School, with over 100 people participating.

The City continues to engage the public through these town hall style meetings. The next event will be scheduled in the early fall. Registration is not required. Light refreshments will be served, and translation services will be available for our Spanish speaking residents.

Future meeting dates and times will be announced as they are calendared.  For more information, please call (562) 929-5735 or email
