City Council Ward Town Hall

What's on your mind? Any burning questions? Now's your chance! The Pullman City Council developed the idea for a series of town hall events as an opportunity for residents like you to share feedback and continue important conversations. The hope is to encourage civil engagement, provide casual feedback, and learn more about how each of us plays a pivotal role in creating a better Pullman.

FORMAT
Remember, this is YOUR time. While City Council Regular Meetings regularly give opportunities for public comment, the town hall format is an informal place for you to present topics that aren't part of any agenda. Present your honest thoughts in a casual, civil environment by asking questions, giving feedback, and seeking clarity as you find space to connect with neighbors and Councilmembers on the things that are  important to you and to building a stronger Pullman community.

We want everyone to feel welcome and engaged. Please familiarize yourself with the following ground rules so everyone gets the most out of the town hall:

Please do...
o Allow space for others to share.
o Keep comments short and concise.
o Respect others.
o Stay on topic.

Please do not...
x Criticize individuals.
x Interrupt the speaker.
x Use inflammatory language.
