On October 18, 2016 the City of Gladstone held a Town Hall Meeting at the Gladstone High School. Approximately 130 people were in attendance as the City staff gave presentations on updates to the strategic plan and the community engaged in a break-out session focusing on their top priorities. At the end of the program the City had a question and answer session. Staff will compile a list of all the questions and prepare answers and post them to the City’s website in the near future.
