City of Amarillo introduces new communications resource for citizens


The City of Amarillo (COA) is providing a new communications resource for the community to get involved and help shape the future of Amarillo.

Community Solutions is a new and reoccuring program with two primary goals: Allow members of Amarillo City Council to receive feedback and information directly from residents on major topics impacting Amarillo now and in the future - and at the same time allow members of the community to become personally engaged in providing ideas and solutions for an array of topics impacting the future of the entire city. 

The first program is Community Solutions: Housing Needs and Future Development. This program – which is open to the public – will be from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on May 11 at the Amarillo Civic Center Grand Plaza. This initial program will focus on housing needs, affordability and the future of the housing market in Amarillo. Community Solutions will focus on a different topic impacting Amarillo’s future for each program.

“Progress is made when a community comes together by sharing ideas and information. This is what Community Solutions provides,” said Amarillo Mayor Ginger Nelson. “Amarillo City Council wants members of our community to be involved in the city’s future, and this is best accomplished when we come together as a community and share solutions, goals and vision. We look forward to addressing Amarillo’s future as a community.”

“The first Community Solutions program will focus on housing in Amarillo – and there are many areas that can be discussed,” said COA Managing Director of Planning and Special Projects Andrew Freeman. “The housing industry is constantly changing – across the nation and in Amarillo. As the population grows, how can Amarillo address these changes as far as housing costs and housing needs? These are topics we want to discuss as a community.”
