Council Invites Citizens to Participate in Goals Process

Post Date:08/29/2014
The City is holding a Community Workshop to provide input for the 2015/2016 Goals, Initiatives & Outcomes (GIOs) on Thursday, September 11, 2014, from 7-8:30 pm at the Williamsburg Community Building, 401 N. Boundary Street. Residents are invited to join City Council members and staff to share feedback and ideas.

Every two years the Williamsburg City Council identifies new strategic objectives for City government. Biennial Goals, Initiatives and Outcomes (GIOs) provide an expression of the City's priorities.

The Community Workshop is just one of the opportunities for citizen involvement and input during the process that includes public meetings and an online forum. (List of meetings below).

The complete schedule for the 2015/2016 Goals, Initiatives & Outcomes process and the 2013/2014 GIOs and National Citizen Survey Results are available online at williamsburgva.gov/goals.
