The City of Palo Alto is inviting community leaders to join a conversation on City services, fiscal sustainability, and tax increases, which will help inform upcoming discussions on the annual budget process and potential revenue measures considerations.

They had planned for three sessions last week but cancelled one due to lack of attendees. Out of the two standing sessions only two people attended which shows the lack of outreach efforts by the City.

NAIOP Members:

Get involved and attend one of the outreach meetings and/or fill out the City’s Fiscal Sustainability survey http://www.cityofpaloalto.org/fiscalsustainability
