ARPA Listening Group

OVERVIEW

Mayor Greg Verga has convened an ARPA Listening Group comprised of eight members tasked with hosting five to six listening post meetings, learning from our citizens, and synthesizing the information gathered from this process to create actionable recommendations "to do the most good for the most people over the most time."

The group will work closely with the City's Ward Councilors to invite and engage each ward's constituencies to participate in these discussions. This group will host five to six listening posts throughout the community to solicit public input on potential uses of these funds. Following the six sessions, the ARPA Listening Group will use their knowledge and expertise to synthesize their findings from the public and build recommendations to report back to the City's administration.
