Since 2008, the Mill Valley City Council has participated in a community outreach program called “Councilmember on the Plaza.” On the first and third Saturday of the month, a rotating Councilmember is available in the Downtown Plaza for a few hours for discussion, suggestions, comments, complaints and general community input.
People stop by to discuss current issues, their suggestions or to just have a conversation about our city. The conversations are not limited by time as is the public comment opportunity at city council meetings. Some just stop by and to say they have nothing to talk about but they are just glad the council is there to listen.
This successful program is now in its sixth year.
Residents report enjoying the ability to sit down with a Councilmember to share their thoughts and concerns. The personal interaction serves as an affirmation of the small town character intrinsic to Mill Valley.
You can find a Councilmember on the Plaza from 10 am to noon on the first and third Saturday of every month (weather permitting). We encourage everyone to stop by to have a chat and tell a councilmember what’s on your mind.
