SANTA MONICA, Calif. – The City of Santa Monica invites residents to attend the State of the City, part of the Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce's Economic Summit on Wednesday, February 12. The annual event will highlight community achievements in 2019 and focus on what’s ahead for 2020 with Mayor Kevin McKeown. The theme is Social Impact: Working together to shape our future. Along these lines, Mick Ebeling, Founder of Not Impossible Labs, will speak about changing the world through technology and story.  

At the January 14 Council meeting, Mayor McKeown and Councilmember Greg Morena initiated a request for funds to allow residents to attend State of the City at no cost. 

“How we’re doing and where we’re going is everybody’s business, and this event can become a place for all Santa Monicans to engage on significant issues,” said Mayor Kevin McKeown.  “At this year’s State of the City, I hope to see a better-than-ever mix of neighborhood businesses and neighborhood residents.” 

This event brings together the business and resident communities to hear about the latest trends and innovations regionally and globally. The Mayor presents the State of the City including the newest initiatives and the economic report of the past year.  

“Would love to see locals and all community stakeholders at this event,” said Councilmember Morena. “Bring your people, connect with local businesses, community leaders and all who make Santa Monica a world class destination and the best city of the 21st Century.”
