Connecting You To... Your Neighborhood
Our goal is to connect with the community by partnering and participating in events and neighborhood meetings.


Community Picnics 2017 

Mayor Nancy Backus would like to invite you to a community picnic in your neighborhood. In conjunction with the Neighborhood Programs division, we wanted to create a fun, informal way for our residents to communicate with City staff and elected officials. All we ask is that you come by when we are in your neighborhood, hang out, eat some good food and share your compliments or concerns with us! Hot dogs and hamburgers will be served by Auburn Police Department and Valley Regional Fire Authority.

Join us for an evening of fun and good company and learn more about the great city that we live in!
Here is a list of the Community Picnics happening this summer. If you're not sure which Picnic is for you, check out our interactive map where you can search your address to find your Picnic!
Please RSVP Onlinelinks to external site.

Please bring a lawn or camping chair with you to these picnics as seating at these locations is limited.

For more information about the Community Picnics, contact Erika Klyce, Neighborhood Programs Coordinator via email or at 253-876-1988.
