Dear friends, neighbors and colleagues -
As we continue to transition from crisis response into recovery, we know a variety of complexities and challenges remain. Recovery does not mean the crisis is gone. Our nation continues to face several crises that combined will have a significant impact on the current and future health and well-being of our communities. Racial disparities in health outcomes for COVID-19 patients, discriminatory (and often lethal) practices in our criminal-justice systems, increased polarization of public opinion, and the economic fallout of public health restrictions will influence the values and needs of our community. We must continue to transform the way we do our work to improve lives and build resilience.
One example in the short term is how we have partnered with community and regional partners to offer a wide variety of Independence Day activities. While we cannot gather in person at City Park for our traditional fireworks show, I hope you and your family will find ways to enjoy and participate in some of the activities featured below.
Darin Atteberry, City Manager
