In addition to the survey, the City is hosting a Community Forum as an opportunity for residents and community members to provide additional input on City services and programs, and share ideas and interests for La Mirada’s future.

All residents and community members are invited to attend the meeting.

The Community Forum will be held on Tuesday, November 17 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at La Mirada City Hall.
