Galt residents will have several opportunities to hear presentations about the Galt Market Community Plan over the next month. Both day and evening meetings are planned to help facilitate the various schedules of members of the community.

City staff members, Interim City Manager Tom Haglund, Community Development Director Chris Erias and Economic Development Manager Amie Mendes, are expected to deliver informational presentations at upcoming city meetings and a Galt District Chamber of Commerce luncheon. A special forum hosted by the chamber early next month will allow for a question and answer opportunity, as well as an open discussion with the public about the market plan.

City officials will first present to the Galt Parks and Recreation Commission tonight, Wednesday, Oct. 9, followed by a presentation to the Galt Planning Commission Thursday, Oct. 10. Both meetings will be held at City Hall in Council chambers at 6 p.m. Commission members will not be making decisions on the market plan, but may provide feedback to City Council.

These informational meetings allow for public comment; however, like City Council meetings, there is little dialog between commission and staff members and members of the public during the meeting.

On Oct. 24, city staff will share the presentation at the monthly chamber luncheon, at which everyone is invited to attend. The luncheon begins at 11:30 a.m. at the Littleton Community Center. The lunch is $10 per person and will be catered by chamber member El Arcoiris Taqueria. Tickets can be purchased online at, in person at the chamber office, 604 N. Lincoln Way, or by calling 209-745-2529. Please purchase your tickets before Oct. 22. Tickets at the door will be $20, but will be limited.

The Galt Market Community plan will be presented at a special forum Monday, Nov. 4 at 6 p.m., hosted by the Galt District Chamber of Commerce.

Facilitated by chamber members, this forum will allow for a review of the market plan and then open for questions and answers between the public and city staff members.

The forum will be held at the Littleton Community Center. Light refreshments will be served.
