Civic Affairs Forum - Walnut Creek Community Priorities with City Manager Dan Buckshi
Join us for our next Civic Affairs Forum featuring Dan Buckshi, City Manager for the City of Walnut Creek.
The City of Walnut Creek has engaged the community in conversations about the future needs of Walnut Creek. Those conversations have ramped up over the past two years, with the City engaging in discussions with residents regarding their priorities and interests, and evaluating growing needs related to the vital programs and services provided by the City. In particular, many City facilities, such as the aging infrastructure in the pool and aquatic and sports facilities at Heather Farm and the community center, that support the community's most valued programs and services, are decades old and nearing the end of their useful lifespans after constant use by thousands of individuals and families. To fund future quality of life needs, the City is exploring the concept of asking voters to consider a ten-year, 1/2 cent sales tax increase (ballot measure) in November 2022.
Following the presentation, Mr. Buckshi will answer questions from the zoom audience facilitated by Matt Guichard, the Chair of the Civic Affairs Forum.
