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

If you have questions, we have answers.

Come to the community event series Santa Monica Talks to meet neighbors, city staff, and learn what’s happening in your city in a fun, casual setting. Three events are scheduled mid-November. City Manager Rod Gould will share his perspective on city services and Santa Monica’s future. City staff will answer questions and hear your hopes and ideas for the community.

Information at each event will be the same. Come to whichever works best for you. Local businesses will provide free food and drinks. Free childcare, bike valet, and Big Blue Bus vouchers will be available. We’ll even have fun games to learn what is happening in your city.
