kittyMayor Kitty Piercy will deliver her 2013 State of the City Address on Wednesday, January 8, 2014, at 5:30 p.m., in the lobby of the Hult Center for the Performing Arts, where she will highlight key accomplishments made in the City of Eugene in 2013 and outline goals for the City for the coming year. Entertainment will include musical selections from the Sheldon High School Dublinaires.

The event will feature two community awards recognizing individuals and organizations, whose work in 2013 has furthered the Mayor and City Council’s goals, along with City of Eugene staff recognitions. In the annual awards, the three finalists for the Bold Steps Award will be present, and the winning recipient will be announced during the event.

Recognizing the need in our community for food assistance programs, Food for Lane County will be providing collection barrels and attendees are encouraged to bring non-perishable canned goods for donation during this free public event.

There was no indication given if a public Q&A session would take place after the address.

The event is wheelchair accessible and will be interpreted for the hearing-impaired.
