Town Halls for All

townhall-image.jpg

Thanks to today's hectic and busy society, getting residents — of all ages — involved in charting the course for their city requires more creative approaches than the typical town hall meeting.

Mayor Betsy Price founded Walking, Rolling and Caffeinated Town Halls to break the mold of that traditional, worn-out and sometimes boring town hall meeting with a casual — and active — way for residents to connect with this city's elected leaders.

Come on out to our next town hall gathering to meet your representatives and have your voice heard! You might even have some fun with city leaders while you're at it!

It's Your Fort Worth, and we want to hear from you!

Strap your walking shoes and bring your ideas for a casual stroll and an active conversation about your community. Mayor Betsy is taking to the sidewalks for Walking Town Halls. These are fantastic opportunities to engage with Mayor Betsy and councilmembers while highlighting individual districts' improvements and needs. What to expect:

  • Slower-paced “show and tell” atmosphere
  • Typically, we will walk a brisk mile or a mile and a half
  • Locations vary by district and season, but usually we walk through parks, neighborhoods or via pedestrian friendly sidewalks
