Collier County Commissioner Donna Fiala, District 1, invites Collier County residents to attend her second Town Hall Gathering of 2018 at 6 PM, Wednesday, March 21, at the South Regional Library, 8065 Lely Cultural Parkway, Naples.
“I encourage everyone interested in programs, events and facilities provided by Collier County government to attend this Town Hall Gathering, where citizens will hear directly from county staff as they address what is happening in their neighborhoods and in the vicinity,” said Commissioner Fiala. “This gathering provides me the invaluable opportunity of sharing information by bringing county government up close and personal with my constituents.”
Commissioner Fiala will provide opening remarks and introduce several key members of the county administrative team: Collier County Manager Leo E. Ochs, Jr.; Barry Williams, Parks and Recreation Division Director; Amanda Townsend, Museums Division Director; Thaddeus Cohen, Growth Management Department Head; Mike Bosi, Planning and Zoning Division Director; Mark Strain, Planning Commission Chairman; and, Jay Ahmad, Traffic Engineering Division Director.
“I encourage community members to come and hear status reports about present and future projects, including the new Aquatic Center at Eagle Lakes Community Park, the U.S. 41 East Corridor Study, Commercial and Residential Development in the area, Transportation Projects and Museum updates. You’ll be made aware of what is going on currently and what to expect soon,” said Commissioner Fiala.
“I look forward to public input as we talk about projects that will specifically impact those living and working in East Naples,” said Commissioner Fiala. “There’s definitely value in bringing government staff to visit citizens in their community to understand needs and positions. I prioritize being accessible and responding to citizen inquiries with helpful resources like staff.”
More than one commissioner may be present at, and participate in, Commissioner Fiala’s District 1 Town Hall Gathering. Discussion may include items for action at a future Board of County Commissioners meeting.
