Youth Town Hall Post 1

PUEBLO – Youth of Pueblo are invited to contribute to the strategic plan for the use of $36.7 million the City is expected to receive later this month from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). Mayor Gradisar recognizes and values the authentic desire of Pueblo’s youth to share their vision and voice with the City’s leadership. “These are the next generation of leaders,” says Mayor Gradisar. “It’s important we hear from them and make them part of the team. I have been impressed with the individuals on the Mayor’s Youth Council and have engaged them to share the news of this Town Hall with their peers.”

The Town Hall will be held at 4 pm on Thursday, May 20, 2021 at the Rawlings Library, Ryals Room. Topics of discussion will be the seven pillars of focus identified by the Mayor: individuals and households, tourism and hospitality, youth, non-profits, small business, infrastructure, and community resilience.”

“As the experts of their own demographic, our teens have valuable insight and perspectives, especially when it comes to strategies for supporting the youth of our community,” says Mayor Gradisar. “I’ll be there to listen.”


ARPA guidelines have recently been published. Attendees will give input at this time and have opportunity to volunteer for working groups tasked with developing strategy, prioritizing projects, and investigating ways to maximize funding streams. The volunteer form and other information may be found at: https://www.pueblo.us/2706/ARPA.


This Town Hall follows five town halls Mayor Gradisar hosted across the City of Pueblo last month. These Town Halls provided opportunity for residents to make suggestions for immediate stabilization and sustainable recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
