Calendar

Note: In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19), many City meetings were canceled, but most have now resumed.  Those of other than the City Council and possibly the Planning Commission are currently being held as Zoom webinars, with no physical meeting place, and for these the pubic has to register to observe or offer live comments. See the City’s COVID-19 webpage for updates and the individual agendas for details.

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 the “tentative agendas” distributed at the Planning Commission meetings and while the matters listed on them may happen, they sometimes don’t.

For past events and months, visit our YTD Listing.
