Next ‘Paso Talks’ seminar to discuss tourism 

–Paso Talks, a new series of public forums designed to engage residents about core issues facing our community, debuted on Sept. 5.

Each Paso Talk will include a presentation, led by city staff and community experts in each respective field, to address the key facts residents of Paso Robles need to know. Following each presentation, a question and answer session encourages attendees to ask questions and participate in the dialogue.

“The goal of Paso Talks is to inform our residents about these key issues, clarify any possible misperceptions, and to hear what they think,” said Tom Frutchey, city manager. “We’ve also invited candidates running for the upcoming November election to participate. Paso Talks provides Roblans an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the challenges we face as a community, the City’s ongoing efforts, and goals we’re working toward as your local public servants.”

Paso Robles residents are invited to mark their calendar and participate in Paso Talks throughout the month of September.
