The City of Goleta will recognize National Public Works Week May 18 – 24, 2014. Join us at the Farmer’s Market on May 22nd from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m. at the Camino Real Marketplace to celebrate this week. The community will have the opportunity to meet the professionals from the City of Goleta’s Public Works department, learn more about the City’s projects and participate in fun demonstrations and activities for the whole family. We will offer tasty treats and free educational materials for children.
Public Works Week has been celebrated and sponsored by the American Public Works Association since 1960. Across North America, over 28,000 members within the United States and Canada use this week to energize and educate the public on the importance of the contribution Public Works make to their daily lives. This year’s theme of “Building for Today, Planning for Tomorrow” represents the dedication public works departments and professionals have toward maintaining city structures and safety for present and future generations.
How does the Goleta Public Works department serve our City? Just a few of their services include maintaining City streets, storm drains, sidewalks, parks and open spaces. In addition, Goleta Public Works is also involved in many of the major development projects you see while driving around town. The department also develops programs to train and educate the public on safe methods to keep our water and air clean.
We’ll see you on May 22nd as we celebrate and recognize Goleta Public Works together!
