The City recently launched a new Community Engagement Program. So what exactly is community engagement? Community engagement is the act of you and your neighbors constructively sharing ideas and valuable feedback about our community. Community engagement is a vital part of the democratic process and is essential to evolving our community.
We want to know what you #thinkreno can be to help us create a new vision for our city. You can share your ideas by attending a community forum, starting a discussion at thinkreno.org, or staying informed and engaged through our social media channels.
Be the change you want to see in the #biggestlittlecity and start engaging across the following platforms:
These are quarterly meetings in each Ward with your Councilmember. There will be some updates on City services like Public Safety and Code Enforcement, some talk about City and neighborhood projects and a chance to help guide the long-term vision for our City. Visit reno.gov/thinkreno to participate in ongoing conversations about the future of our neighborhoods and community.
All Community Forums are 6 - 8 p.m. Forum dates and locations are below:
April 17: Oscar Delgado, Ward 3 at Neil Road Women's and Children's Center.

Our Reno Direct call center is great, but there are times when you just can’t pick up a phone to make a call, or you want to include a picture with your request. We have a new City of Reno smartphone app that lets you report an issue and send a photo on the fly. It’s a free app you can download at the iTunes or Google online app stores.
This is a free, annual program that lasts for eight weeks. You'll learn all about city government and the services we provide. You’ll meet department leaders, visit City facilities like fire stations, the Regional Emergency Operations Center and the Public Works Corporation Yard. You may even get to meet one of our hard working four legged officers.
