Park City Council Hosts Coffee Chat To Connect With Community

Park City community members can catch up with Park City Councilmembers Nann Worel and Steve Joyce this Tuesday, at the Coffee with Council event. 

Park City Council’s outreach events, such as Coffee with Council and Apres with Council, started in 2016 as a monthly, informal way to engage the community. To build on that effort, and the city’s Love Where You Live campaign, Council attends other events throughout town. Groups like HOAs and community organizations can also invite the Council to come out and speak with them.

Worel says all city-related topics are welcome, especially if they pertain to the community’s critical priorities of housing, energy, transportation and social equity. In particular, Worel wants to build on the results of a social equity survey the Park City Community Foundation presented to the Council last week. Survey takers reported a lack of feeling included in Park City.

“Some people in the community aren’t feeling included, so if they’d like to come and talk about that why why don't they feel included—what different things could we be doing to make a more inclusive community—kind of building off of the report the Community Foundation did and this survey that they did,” Worel said.

Community Engagement Manager Linda Jager says if you’ve never attended, it’s a good way to connect with the council and your neighbors.

“Bring some questions—what have you always wondered about what's happening at the city?" Jager said. "Or, if there's something of particular interest to you; if you're shy and don’t want to speak up amongst the group, as Nann mentioned there is time afterwards to chat one-on-one with Council, but it’s a great idea to come in with some questions and things that you'd like to learn more about. We’re happy to share.”

Coffee with Council takes place 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. April 16 at Lucky Ones Coffee in the Park City Library. The city will also provide coffee and pastries.
