I want to start with the results for 2016 National Citizen Survey, please use this link to access the report http://www.cityofpaloalto.org/civicax/filebank/documents/55618.

Each year, the Council sets its priorities giving the community a clear definition of what the City is trying to accomplish throughout the year. 2016's Council Priorities were:
- The Built Environment: Housing and parking with a particular emphasis on mobility.
- Healthy City, Healthy Community
- Completion of the Comprehensive Plan
Were 2016 priorities accomplished? Residents are encouraged to speak during oral communications to provide recommendations as to what you feel the City's priorities should be focused on. Please attend, participate and make your voice heard.
