The City of Dublin will present the State of the City on Thursday, March 14, at The Exchange at Bridge Park.
The theme, A Connected Community, will highlight the many partnerships and organizations that help make the City of Dublin a global city of choice and help us provide best-in-class services and quality of life for residents and Dublin’s businesses/workforce.
The State of the City will also highlight how technology and infrastructure will continue to connect our community through Dublin’s smart city “connected” initiatives and projects such as the Pedestrian/Bicycle Bridge and the new Columbus Metropolitan Library Dublin Branch.
The event is open to the public. The State of the City will also be live streamed.
Dublin City Manager Dana McDaniel and Dublin City Schools Superintendent Dr. Todd Hoadley highlighted several City/School partnerships and current and future programs that are creating the right environment for residents, students, teachers and businesses to thrive.
McDaniel and Hoadley both stated the State of the City and State of the Schools is excellent which can be attributed to the collaboration and partnership between the City of Dublin and Dublin City Schools.
“When our residents, government leaders, schools and businesses share ideas, resources and effort, incredible things can happen,” said McDaniel.
State of the Community highlights included City/School funding sources, technology in the classrooms as a result of 100-Gig Dublink fiber and the Bridge Street District Development Agreement, the future Emerald Campus, an update on the new Dublin Branch Library, and the District’s master plan addressing growth.
McDaniel released a few results from the 2018 National Citizen Survey – most notable: 99% of Dublin residents surveyed rated the City as an excellent or good place to live. McDaniel said according to the National Research Center that conducts the survey the 2018 results are among the highest ratings recorded in the National Research Center’s benchmarking database. The full National Citizen Survey report will be presented at the April 9th Dublin City Council meeting.
