City Link Springfield Oregon is working to empower under-represented leaders in Springfield to better understand and participate in their local government. The 2021 City Link program will be held from 5:30-7 p.m., every Wednesday from October 20 through November 17. This year’s program will be held virtually. City Link is offered at no cost to the Springfield community. The deadline to apply is 5 p.m. Wednesday, October 13.
Through City Link, participants will meet with leaders from City departments and divisions to gain a better understanding of how their government works, build contacts, and ask questions. Following the course, participants will be in a great position to help their neighbors understand and access City government as City liaisons.
