Carrollton Mayor to Present State of the City Address at 13th Annual Citizens’ Evening March 4
Carrollton Mayor Kevin Falconer will present the State of the City Address at the 13th annual Citizens’ Evening on Wednesday, March 4. The free event will take place at the Carrollton Senior Center (1720 Keller Springs Road) in the Texas Ballroom and will begin at 6 p.m.
Attendees will have an opportunity to mingle with City officials and meet members of the Neighborhood Advisory Commission. Informational booths will be set up so attendees can learn about City services, as well as volunteer opportunities within the community.
Mayor Falconer’s State of the City Address will focus on new developments, programs, and events within the community. Because the City of Carrollton is “Where Connections Happen,” the organization works hard to connect its residents with information about all that is occurring within city limits.
“The City’s vision for Carrollton is to be the community that families and businesses want to call home,” Falconer said. “I invite all citizens to join us as I share some of the exciting things happening in our great City as we continue to progress toward that vision.”
The event agenda also includes the presentation of the Carrollton Volunteer Awards, including the Volunteer of the Year, Youth Volunteer of the Year, Neighborhood Leadership, and Outstanding Community Organization Awards facilitated by the City’s Neighborhood Partnership Office, as well as the Jimmy Porter Award facilitated by the Parks & Recreation Department. These awards are designed to recognize individuals, organizations, and leaders who have gone above and beyond to deliver exceptional community service to the City of Carrollton and its residents in 2019.
“The City is excited to recognize volunteers who have contributed their time, ideas, and efforts in making our community such a great place,” Environmental Services Director Cory Heiple said. “Carrollton is grateful for the many volunteers whose service enhances the lives of its residents and visitors.”
Parking for Citizens’ Evening will be available at the Carrollton Senior Center, as well as Carrollton City Hall (1945 E. Jackson Road). Shuttles will run between City Hall and the Senior Center from 5:45 p.m. to 7:15 p.m. and again from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m., picking up on the west side of City Hall near the flag poles.
