‘One Romulus’ community meeting set for Aug. 17

Mayor Robert A. McCraight
Romulus city officials will be hosting “One Romulus” community meetings, a listening tour that provides residents the opportunity to speak with Mayor Robert A. McCraight, elected officials, public safety leaders and neighbors. 

Launched as part of a continuing effort to foster collaboration among residents and city leaders, the “One Romulus” community meetings will occur throughout the summer at 6 p.m. in selected locations including Wednesday, Aug.17 at Romulus City Hall, 11111 Wayne Road 

“When I was campaigning across Romulus, I repeatedly heard community members express a desire to meet face-to-face with their elected officials,” McCraight said. “The 'One Romulus' community meetings will provide this invaluable facetime while sparking partnerships and collaborations that will strengthen our city.”

To open each meeting, McCraight will provide an update on the latest city news and announcements, which will then be followed by a question and answer session and networking. 

“These meetings won't be one-sided with me doing all of the talking at residents,” McCraight continued. “We want our residents to feel comfortable sharing their ideas, and we encourage them to come prepared for an engaging and constructive conversation.”

In addition to the “One Romulus” community meetings, the city has several free events planned for the summer where residents can mingle with their neighbors, including Sounds in Downtown, a live concert series from 7 until 9 p.m. every second and fourth Friday and Movies the in Park every third Friday.
