November 18th Meeting:

MEET THE COMMISSIONERS

When we talk about Sunnyvale City government and local issues, we tend to focus on the City Council and City Staff, but much of the critical work is done by our many commissions - residents who volunteer their time and play a key role in making Sunnyvale the City we love.

The commissions and boards include the Planning Commission, Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Commission, Housing and Human Services Commission, Arts Commission, Sustainability Commission, Parks and Recreation Commission, the Library Board of Trustees and others.

For our November meeting we have invited City commissioners to introduce themselves and their commission, talk about the key issues they are dealing with and possible study issues they will be recommending to the City Council at the end of the year.

This should be a very informative meeting touching on all of the issues impacting our City this year.

As always, meetings are free and open to the public.

Saturday * November 18th  * 2 to 4pm  *  Fairbrae Swim Club  *   696 Sheraton Ave. *   Sunnyvale CA
