Calendar

Note: In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19), many City meetings have been cancelled. See the City webpage for updates.

Listed below are upcoming SPON-relevant events and activities expected in the next few weeks.  Additional events can be found on the City’s online calendar and their agendas posting page (for best results on that page, select “All Years” and “All Meeting Bodies” — past City meeting materials are eventually moved to the “Archived Meetings” pages).

City Manager Grace Leung’s The Week in Review, posted each Friday, also provides descriptions of upcoming City events, not all of which are listed here.

Items listed below for which notice has not yet been posted on the City website are based on “tentative agendas” distributed at some meetings and while they may happen, they sometimes don’t.

For past events and months, visit our YTD Listing.
