Dear community partners,
The Mayor and Council is inviting Rockville residents to a conversation about how the community can become a more inclusive place to live and work.
A Thursday, Feb. 9 evening town hall aims to foster dialogue about how to improve the city’s efforts to welcome and engage its diverse residents. Rockville is the 14th most diverse city in America and one-third of its residents were born outside the United States.
Human Rights Commission Chair Ebony Davis and former Rockville City Police Department chief Terry Treschuk will facilitate the town hall. Audience members will be able to address the Mayor and Council. Rockville Channel 11 will tape the meeting for broadcast later.
The town hall will run from 7-9 p.m. in the Carnation Room of the Rockville Senior Center, 1150 Carnation Drive.
To contact the Mayor and Council with comments and suggestions feel free to contact them directly at www.rockvillemd.gov/index.aspx?nid=424 by clicking at their names on the left hand column.
Please share this information with others and plan to attend this important meeting to continue shaping the future of Rockville.
