Mayor's Ad Hoc Committee for Auburn's 150th Anniversary

  • START: Wednesday, February 28, 2018 6:00 PM
  • END: Wednesday, February 28, 2018 7:30 PM
  • LOCATION: Auburn Public Library

This is the second planning/discussion meeting for the 150th Anniversary Celebration. 

It will be held Wednesday, February 28th at the Auburn Public Library at 6:00PM. All residents are welcome to attend.

Unlike the first meeting, which we kept to exactly 60 minutes, this will be a 90 minute meeting so we can refine how a year of events in Auburn, with the City and partners, might take form.

Since this evening meeting is targeted to partners across our city (athletic associations, historical groups, cultural organizations, faith-based organization, historic property owners, and others), attendees are asked to come prepared to highlight two specific aspects of your affiliation's work:

  • Does your organization offer a regular series of events during the year (or a time of year) that might offer an opportunity to relate one to Auburn's 150th celebration?
  • If you do not have regular schedule events that might offer one to focus on the celebration, might your organization be open to creating a new, one time (or recurring) event?
  • Does your organization have a pending project/initiative that might be promoted/linked to the 150th celebration as a way to generate interest in investing in our community (public investment, private/business/individual investment, foundation investment, etc)?  This could be a capital campaign, improved signage, etc.

City Staff have provided some information on city events/special events for the calendar year as well as city-based projects that we can discuss as well. These will be discussed and reviewed through the lens of "what success looks like" that were shared at our first meeting.

We look forward to this second discussion and continued community input and guidance into this process.
