The City of Sterling Heights will be hosting its third-annual New Resident Forum this month in an effort to better connect and communicate with residents.
The forum will be held at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 29 at the Library Programming Center, 40255 Dodge Park Road.
At the forum, residents will learn City basics from leaders in the City’s Police, Fire, City Development, Finance, Parks & Recreation and Library departments and be able to ask any questions they may have at the end of the presentations. Mayor Michael C. Taylor and other members of City Council will also be present.
“We work hard to make sure our services and programs are open and accessible to residents via City Hall and our website, but some new residents may be first-time homebuyers or unfamiliar with what Sterling Heights has to offer,” Community Relations Director Bridget Kozlowski said. “This is a chance for the City to make face-to-face contact with residents, present and explain the various City departments and answer any questions they may have. It’s an excellent opportunity for connection.”
“I hope new residents will take advantage of this opportunity to learn more about the City and meet with top-level staff and elected officials,” said Mayor Michael C. Taylor. “We want the City of Sterling Heights to be accessible, transparent and helpful to as many residents as possible.”
The New Resident Forum is open to all new residents who have moved into the City since August 2017. Those that plan to attend are asked but not required to email firstname.lastname@example.org and include their name and address. Light refreshments will be served. Residents with questions about the forum can call Community Relations at (586) 446-2470.
