2010
Town Hall Meeting, April 29, held in conjunction with the City Council, to address "Beautification of Trinidad" in hopes of making the town more presentable for future businesses and home owners.

Announcement letters had been sent to our local churches, word of mouth, article in the Malakoff paper, and signs of the upcoming meeting were our methods of making our citizens aware of the meeting.) 31 townspeople were present.

We shared our concern for increasing community pride. Those present were asked, "Why have I chosen Trinidad as my hometown"; encouraged everyone to keep his/her area picked up; voiced concerns with areas being dealt with thru City Ordinance violations (trashed yards, burned out houses, abandoned vehicles, etc); challenged local beautification through planting flowers/trees throughout the city.

Had sign up sheets for the following committees: 1) Town Cleanup; 2) Flower/Tree Gardening; 3) New City Signage; 4) Volunteering with Churches for Emergency Needs; and 5) Building Trojan Pride - an area adoption program to keep a street or area picked up of trash for 6 months.

Anticipated response: - hopeful.
