PALM SPRINGS — The Palm Springs Convention Center will serve as the backdrop for what is being billed as a “community conversation” on Wednesday, Sept. 4.

It will be the third in a popular series of forums the city of Palm Springs has been holding.

The city of Palm Springs welcomes eve-yone with an interest in the affairs of our conversation, which will be hosted by Mayor pro tem Geoff Kors and Councilmember J.R. Roberts.

Kors is seeking re-election in District 3. Roberts chose not to seek re-election when his term expires later this year.

The 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. forum will be held at the Palm Springs Convention Center, Primrose A, 277 N. Avenida Caballeros.

The event will be conducted more as an informal “community conversation” so that issues of importance can be discussed in a less formal atmosphere than a typical City Council meeting, according to Communications Director Amy Blaisdell. In addition, City Manager David H. Ready and Department Heads will be on hand to answer questions and listen to public comments.

Residents are encouraged to address any issues of interest such as economic development and what’s happening downtown, parks, streets, vacation rental compliance, issues related to cannabis, the new voting districts in Palm Springs — or any other topic that affects the Palm Springs community.

This community conversation comes just two months before the district-based election in November, which provides residents an opportunity to clear up any confusion they might have.

The results of the forum will be presented to the City Council to use as part of its ongoing goal setting and strategic planning. Everyone is invited to attend and share their input.

Residents will be able to watch the forum the following day online by clicking here or on Palm Springs Community Television Channel 17.

This marks the third time the forum has been held at the Convention Center.
