Share ideas on how to make Prince George's neighbourhoods – and the city as a whole – even better places to live by participating in Talktober. The City hosts information sessions each October to help to Council re-connect with partners and residents.
These informal meetings let residents get in touch with their local government, learn more about current and up-coming initiatives like the Citizen Budget, and give feedback to Council and Administration about issues that matter to them.
Talktober Events and Citizen Budget
