State of the City Address

Partnership, collaboration, and hope. Those three elements have shaped and guided everything we have done over the past year and our community will do as we move forward. It has been undeniably difficult and challenging and relentless and ongoing and so many other things. The experience also taught us so many lessons about how to get things done. To list them all individually is to guarantee some will be missed. To lump them all together seems in a way to minimize the tremendous work, commitment, and dedication our community has shown in the face of unceasing adversity.

Our community has through a lot over the past 12 months. We have learned and loved, adapted and adjusted. We have struggled and we have survived. And we have done it together.

Join Mayor Nadine Woodward on Wednesday, March 17 at noon for the annual State of the City Address. She will look back at the remarkable resiliency of our community and ahead to renewed hope beginning to work its way back into our lives. This year’s conversation will be virtual and give you a behind the scenes look inside an exciting new venue. You can sign up at You can also join the conversation on the City’s Facebook page.
