Community Outreach

Please check out our new Community Outreach Subject Matter Experts Video Series.

The onset of COVID-19 has severely impacted our community outreach and ability to foster the relationships that had been developed since the Golden Ray event began. The threat of COVID-19 has removed the convenience of face to face public discussions and community presentations that the Unified Command and surrounding residents appreciated.

In order to address the challenges of information sharing associated with COVID-19, the Unified Command continues to explore plausible venues for community interaction. The Community Outreach page on the website is one of our initiatives to continue our community relationship until the threat of COVID-19 passes and we can engage the public in a more personal means.
