Meeting and Event Highlights for the Week of February 15, 2021

February 12, 2021 4:26 PM

Land Banking and Rent Assistance

The Landlord and Tenant Issues Committee will be discussing the City's land banking program and considering criteria for distributing rent assistance funds at its meeting on Thursday.

Downtown Transit Discussion

The Downtown Coordinating Committee will be discussing downtown transit at its meeting on Thursday.

Winter isn't done with us yet!  If you haven't already, please sign up to receive Snow Plow Updates.  Snow Plow Updates explain what Streets Division operations will be doing in response to snow events, and they routinely go into detail about what people should expect on the roads so they can be prepared for their commutes.

Snow Plow Updates are separate notifications from Declared Snow Emergency Alerts.  Declared Snow Emergency Alerts are about parking and making sure people know to follow alternate side parking during declared snow emergencies.  If you would like Snow Emergency Alerts, you will need to sign up for those separately. You can also sign up for Snow Emergency text alerts.
