The City of La Vista will host two upcoming meetings with residents to gauge support and interest in a variety of community engagement techniques.

La Vista has several important projects on the horizon, all of which will be important in determining the future direction of the community.

The Mayor and City Council have established a strategic goal of enhancing La Vista’s identity. Increasing community engagement is one of the key objectives, and these meetings are a first step in the process to assess which types of engagement methods citizens prefer and those in which they would participate.

These focus group meetings will be held April 14 at the La Vista Public Library, 9110 Giles Road, and April 16, at the La Vista Community Center, 8116 Park View Blvd. Each meeting will begin at 6 p.m. and last one hour.

Food will be provided for those participating in the meetings. Staff will be on hand with children’s activities so parents can attend.

This week the City sent letters of invitation to more than 600 randomly selected La Vista residents and those living in the two-mile zoning jurisdiction.

They also received an RVSP postcard to be returned indicating their availability to participate.

Residents who are not available, but would like to participate in future community engagement initiatives, are invited to contact City Hall so they can be added to future contact lists.
