City departments: Sign up now for 2016 Community Dialogue sessions

The Neighborhood and Community Relations Department began offering Community Dialogues as Cultural Context Tours in the summer of 2015.

This achieves the goal of establishing relationships to continue the conversations into the future.

See the schedule for 2016 Community Dialogue dates. To schedule a Community Dialogue for your department, please contact contact Christina Kendrick, 612-673-3952.
