Celebrate Public Works Week at Camino Real Marketplace

Join Us on May 22 from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m.

Mark your calendars and get ready to celebrate National Public Works Week (May 19 – 25) with staff from the City of Goleta’s Public Works Department and partner agencies! Join us for a family-friendly tradition on Wednesday, May 22nd from 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. at the Camino Real Marketplace (7004 Market Place Drive). It’s a great opportunity to get to know the Public Works professionals who are working in your neighborhoods every day, learn about current and upcoming projects and ask questions.

There will be interactive activities, equipment show-and-tell, information tables, giveaways and more. Stop by our City table to pick up a Live • Work • Play sticker and use it to get a free cup of coffee at Anna’s Bakery or free soda at Los Agaves. Thank you to both businesses for partnering with us!

National Public Works Week is sponsored by the American Public Works Association (APWA) and this year’s theme is “Advancing Quality of Life for All.” Each year, APWA members in the U.S. and Canada spend this week honoring the tens of thousands of men and women who provide and maintain the infrastructure and services collectively known as public works, and educating the public on the important role public works plays in our everyday lives. Public works contributes to advancing and enhancing our quality of life, and public works professionals provide essential services that lead to healthier, happier, more vibrant communities.

We continue to be grateful to our outstanding Goleta Public Works team for all that they do. We are especially thankful for the around-the-clock work they do preparing and responding to storm activity. During the recent winter storms we experienced, Public Works staff went above and beyond to make sure our community was safe. Learn more about our Public Works Department here: www.cityofgoleta.org/your-city/public-works.

The Public Works team will also be acknowledged with a proclamation at the May 21 City Council meeting. Please join us in thanking for them all they do by coming to the meeting and joining us for the May 22 event. There’s so much happening in the Goleta Public Works Department. We hope to see you later this month!
