The City of Fremont held a City Council retreat for the newly seated councilmembers on January 10 and 11 to discuss how the Council and staff can best work together to serve the Fremont community. This workshop provided an opportunity for councilmembers and executive staff to develop norms and protocols, strengthen Council-staff teamwork, and identify Council priorities for the coming year.
At the end of the two-day retreat, the Council came to a consensus on the following priorities for City staff: Decrease the impacts of residential development; reduce traffic congestion; and provide support to neighborhood commercial districts. A report of the retreat summarizing the results is now available.
Over the next several months, staff will be presenting the Council with information and updates on various items that fall within these priority areas. Below is a tentative agenda on when the items will come before the Council:
