What’s happening in our vibrant city?
What does the city’s future hold?
How can you get involved?

Santa Monica Talks is a community event for people who live and work in Santa Monica and want to learn what’s happening in the city. Retiring City Manager Rod Gould will share his perspective on City services and Santa Monica’s future. Some of Santa Monica’s top restaurants will provide delicious bites and beverages. City staff will answer questions and provide essential information about current city programs, initiatives, and ways you can get involved.

The same information will be available at each event. Come to whichever event works best for you.

After Santa Monica Talks, you’ll find that knowing more about where you live, work, and play makes life easier and more interesting.
