City of Santa Maria Schedules Series of Community Meetings

The city of Santa Maria has scheduled three community meetings to provide information and guidance to residents regarding general city-related questions.

Residents are encouraged to come prepared for an informal, interactive, roundtabletype setting. A representative from police and fire will be on hand to help answer questions. In the past, questions from community members ranged from noise complaints to creating a teen artist wall.

The meetings will accommodate Spanish and English speakers and will be offered at three times in three locations.

» Thursday at Atkinson Community Center, 1000 N. Railroad St.

» Sept. 23 at Elwin Mussell Senior Center, 510 E. Park Ave.

» Oct. 22 at Minami Community Center, 600 W. Enos Drive.

All meetings are scheduled from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

For more information, call community outreach coordinator Rosie Narez at 805.925.0951, ext. 414.

Michelle Ladue represents the city of Santa Maria city manager’s office.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
