Town Meetings

Town Meetings are an opportunity for citizens to present concerns and express opinions on an individual basis. They are not intended as forums for public debate or City Council deliberations. Given the size and diversity of the City of Chesapeake, Town Meetings provide a vital forum to allow citizens to take an active role in their local government.

Town Meeting Format

The meetings do not routinely have a specific topic. Discussion is open to whatever areas the attending citizens wish to address. Meetings are from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. and citizens may come at any point during that time. Members of both the City Council and City staff attend each Town Meeting. No minimum quorum of Council Members is required for the meeting.
