Union City CityWorks Bootcamp: Housing & Jobs, Traffic, Parks & Public Safety
Learn bootcamp-style about current issues impacting you
Release Date: 01/20/2017
Get Informed, Get Inspired at Union City's CityWorks Bootcamp
Union City invites residents and businesses in town to attend the CityWorks Bootcamp on Saturday, February 25th from 8:30AM to 4:00PM at the Crowne Plaza on Alvarado-Niles Road. The CityWorks Bootcamp is part of a new effort to educate and foster dialogue with the public about issues that affect them the most, like traffic, jobs, housing, parks and public safety.
In previous years, City officials hosted a 9-week program called the City Services Academy to help the public learn about the nuts and bolts of city operations. However, organizers realized the need to modernize and reinvent the City Services Academy to make it more accessible. The new CityWorks Bootcamp requires less of a time commitment and is more tailored to the public’s interest, focusing on issues rather than operations.
City Manager Tony Acosta states, “We are experimenting with a new style of public engagement…one that is consumer-based, more digestible, friendly, and interactive. Thanks to the digital age, we can receive information and news from social media and the web from the comfort of our homes. We see this trend and have invested in growing our digital outreach; however, there is still a lot of benefit in face-to-face engagement. We’re excited to see how our community responds to this new bootcamp.”
Organizers expect participants to leave with a greater knowledge of current issues impacting the community.
The CityWorks Bootcamp is open to all members of the public who live or work in Union City. Breakfast and lunch will be provided. Register at unioncity.org/bootcamp.
Deadline to register is February 15th, or when registration is full.
