MV: The Next Five Years
An after-hours community forum titled “MV: The Next Five Years” will be led by City Administrator Chris Nosbisch. The program will be focused on City Planning over the next five years.
“We have seen a lot of changes and endured a lot of adversity over the last few years. The CDG Economic Vitality committee approached us with this program and we thought this was a great way to share the City’s plan with the general public. All are welcome to come and hear what the City is planning and how the City of Mount Vernon might be able to better partner with all for-profit and non-profit organizations to ultimately make our community a better place to call home.”Chris Nosbisch, City Administrator, Mount Vernon
The event will include heavy hors d’oeuvres. Wine, soda and beer is available for purchase.
