By George Miller

1. Enhancing community trust, especially in working with Police Department/community policing

2. Determining priorities of residents for city services/activities

This is part of a new program to implement “Priority-Based Budgeting,” which should be more responsive to community priorities and needs, within fiscal constraints.

The format will be a panel discussion, with questions taken on the trust session.  Then, residents will vote to prioritize nearly 200 items generated so far, by placing dots issued to them on their favorite items, appearing on large charts. We were previously told that new priorities may be selected as well.

The session will be held on March 5 from 5:30-8:30 PM at the Oxnard Performning Arts Center, Oxnard Room, 800 Hobson Way, Oxnard.

Finger food and drinks will be served at a mid-session break.

Nyhoff gave special thanks to Jean Joneson and Peggy Rivera for their efforfs in organizing this important event. He envisions a high level of energy and engagement and wants hundreds of people to participate. So, please SPREAD THE WORD!

Booths of community organizations will be there, to explain what they do and answer questions. Over 25 signed up as of 2-26-15.

Residents will also be able to provide on-line input to the process for a week after the event.
