On Friday, April 29, City of Iowa City Council member and Mayor Jim Throgmorton will begin a series of neighborhood walks through Iowa City. The Mayor’s Walks will take place throughout the spring and summer and will give the Mayor an opportunity to learn more about the City from the residents he serves.

"I want to know how things are going in our City's neighborhoods," said Mayor Throgmorton. "And walking our streets and hearing directly from neighbors is a great way to learn."

The first walk begins Friday afternoon when the Mayor will take the 3:45 p.m. Lakeside bus to the corner of Lakeside Drive and Nevada Avenue. From there, he will walk west along Lakeside Drive, north along Miami Drive, and then west along California Avenue toward Sycamore Street, engaging residents and providing contact information for City services, allowing residents to follow up with any questions after his visit.   

Mayor Throgmorton is currently serving his second term on the Iowa City Council.
