State of City talk focusing on economic matters

Posted

An annual review of Westminster’s progress goes back to economic issues this year.

City Economic Development Director John Hall will join Mayor Herb Atchison at the annual State of the City presentation Aug. 28 at the Church Ranch Event Center, 10200 Wadsworth Blvd. The luncheon presentation is set to begin at 11:30 a.m.

This is the third year for the event, hosted by the Westminster Chamber of Commerce. Last year’s luncheon focused on school issues.

“Every other year, we change to something else,” Chamber President Juliet Abdel said. “The mayor will be there giving an update on improvements, projects that are going on and the benchmarks for the city. But then the economic development director will give an overview of the economics and what’s going on there. It’ll be more of a deep-dive on labor, industry and so on.”

Tickets are $60 for members of the chamber and $75 for non-members and can be purchased online at the chamber’s website, www.westminsterchamber.biz.

Abdel said there is room for 150 attendees.

“It’s been a very popular event, year after year, and it’s continued to grow,” she said. “People want to know what’s going on and what’s the latest thing.”

It’s one of several events the chamber hosts each year, including City Council candidate forums Oct. 8 and 12.

“We’ll do one at City Hall and another in historic Westminster, at the Grange Hall down there,” she said.
