During his State of the City Address, Akron Mayor Don Plusquellic announced the launch of a new program called Akron Values. This initiative is designed to obtain real-time feedback from various members of the community on topics like city services, public safety and jobs.
In conjunction with Downtown Akron Partnership (DAP) Emerging Leaders, YPA members and non-members are invited to participate in an evening addition of the Akron Values program. This special event will give young professionals an opportunity to provide input that will directly influence Akron’s plans for the future.
Lead by Rick Merolla (retired Deputy Mayor, Chief of Staff and Service Director) and Warren Woolford (retired Planning Director), this event will take place in the Doric Room at Greystone Hall in Downtown Akron. Parking is available across the street in the CitiCenter Parking Deck. This event is limited to the first 50 registrants.
The program should last roughly one hour, where we will then head downtown to Baxter's Bar for drinks and dinner. If you don't make it to Greystone Hall, feel free to meet up with us afterwards!
