Successful Citizens' Evening at City Hall Held
Posted Date: 2/22/2013 8:30 AM
The 6th annual “Citizens’ Evening at City Hall” held on Tuesday, February 26 at Carrollton City Hall gave citizens a chance to visit with City officials, commission members and departmental representatives; learn how to build stronger Neighborhood Associations; and find out what it takes to develop a successful neighborhood or community action partnership with the City.

Hosted by the Neighborhood Advisory Commission and the City of Carrollton, the Citizens’ Evening was held to promote neighborhood programs and encourage new partnerships, with a goal to facilitate partnership between the City and involved citizen groups to help foster vital neighborhoods.

Mayor Matthew Marchant spoke of the many successes the City has recently had and of the continued efforts towards economic development to boost sales tax revenue and property values. Brad Mink, Director of Economic Development, explained the phenomenal growth the City has experienced over the past several years with new restaurants, businesses and 8 data centers now in Carrollton. Director of Environmental Services, Scott Hudson, discussed the importance of taking precautions with our wildlife, including the bobcats, egrets and mosquitoes.

“We had a great turnout and received very positive feedback from our residents. I’m proud to work in such a great organization,” commented Scott Hudson, Director of Environmental Services.

The event included displays by various City departments, as well as presentations on City initiatives and Carrollton’s local economic outlook. Visit the City’s Facebook page, Carrollton, TX, to view photos from the event.
