On March 6, at the beginning of the City Council meeting, Mayor Tim Knapp presented the “2017 State of the City Address,” providing an overview of the City’s current activities and future plans. During the presentation, the Mayor shared a vision for creating a complete community for all ages of life. The presentation included a review of the City Council’s goals and objectives, an update on major new residential developments that include the Villebois and Frog Pond neighborhoods, an overview of the Wilsonville Town Center Plan and the French Prairie Bridge Project, along with several other proposed transportation and economic development projects. In summary Mayor Knapp stated, “Our ongoing goal is to create a safe, desirable, and aesthetically pleasing community that nurtures, sustains, and connects us all.”
Later in the meeting City Council, which included three of the five City Council members in attendance, decided to continue a discussion on the potential adoption of the 2017-19 City Council key objectives and goals and an updated City Council Protocol Manual until the next meeting on Monday, March 20 when a full City Council is expected to be present.
