City of Temple Hosts 2023 Community Summit

TEMPLE, TX (September 8, 2023)  The City of Temple is excited to host the 2023 Community Summit on Friday, October 6, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Santa Fe Plaza. At this inaugural event, residents will have the opportunity to learn more about the various services offered by city departments and contribute to the City’s 2025 Strategic Plan by sharing their input and ideas.

Community Summit attendees will have the opportunity to interact with city departments, ask questions, and learn more about the programs and services offered to Temple residents. Also, there is a special opportunity for residents to provide feedback for the City’s 2025 Strategic Plan. Serving as a management tool that helps the City of Temple align its leadership, resources, and operations, the Strategic Plan supports the City’s vision of making Temple a place you love to call home. Residents can share their feedback with city departments at the event and take the Strategic Plan Community Survey to help build an updated plan that serves the community and makes Temple an even better place to live, work, and play.

“We are excited about this event and think it will be a great way to engage and inform Temple residents,” said Brynn Myers, Temple City Manager. “We want the community to contribute to the future of their city and help us implement strategies that reflect their needs and aspirations.”

Designed with all ages in mind, the Community Summit will feature an evening of live music from Holly Tucker, snow cones, bounce houses, and much more. The event will be come-and-go, so bring the whole family out for an evening of fun and then stroll on down to Oktoberfest and celebrate First Friday in Downtown Temple.
