Petaluma has a strong tradition of community involvement in city decision-making. There are many different levels of involvement. You can write a letter to the City Council or share your opinion at a Council Meeting. You can join a City Committee, Commission, or Board. You can participate in volunteer activities to get a glimpse of how the City works. And, if you're eligible, you can exercise the right and privilege to vote!
Regardless of how you want to be involved, rest assured, our City works better when we have feedback from a broad range of community members.
