Civic Engagement

Men pointing to an input board
The City of Longview is committed to government transparency, including open governance, citizen participation, clear communication, and financial transparency. As a part of our public outreach, we actively seeks to provide information to the public about city government and inform residents of opportunities to participate in public meetings. 

There are a variety of ways for citizens to stay informed. Residents are encouraged to attend public meetings, which are posted online in the Public Notice and Agenda Center at least 72 hours in advance. Residents can also sign up through Notify Me to receive email or text notifications of public meeting postings, news, or calendar events. City Council meetings, Planning and Zoning meetings, and a variety of shows can be watched on Cityview Municipal Television on Longview Cable or online.
