The first ever pre-recorded Williamsburg State of the City address is scheduled for Thursday at 7 p.m.
The State of the City address follows months of work on the city’s 2020-2021 Goals, Initiatives, and Outcomes, which City Council approved at the November City Council meeting, according to a news release from the city.
During the event, members of City Council will discuss this roadmap for the next two years and launch a public discussion on the city’s new vision statement, which will be unveiled during the address.
“City Council and city staff have started thinking beyond the next two years, and we are inviting the community to join us in that discussion,” Mayor Doug Pons said in the news release. “When you envision the Williamsburg of 2040, what do you see?”
For the first time, the State of the City will include remarks from Colonial Williamsburg Foundation President Cliff Fleet and William & Mary President Katherine Rowe.
“We are thrilled to have the leaders of Williamsburg’s pillar institutions participate in this important event. Their success is our success,” Pons said.
This is the eighth State of the City event; the first was in 2006.
