PALMDALE – The city of Palmdale is inviting local business owners to participate in a virtual town hall meeting this Tuesday to discuss a plan for reopening the local economy after the COVID-19 shutdown.
The “City of Palmdale Path to Reopening: Business Town Hall” will be conducted via Zoom from 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Tuesday, April 28.
“We want to hear, first hand, your challenges and the challenges your employees are facing and solicit your input and ideas on how we can reopen businesses in a timely but responsible manner,” said Palmdale City Manager J.J. Murphy. “Your input will be included in the proposal we are submitting to Los Angeles County to help put us on a path to reopening.”

Registrants will receive a survey/questionnaire before the town hall meeting. Officials are also encouraging registrants to submit questions and comments ahead of time by sending an email to EconomicDevelopment@cityofpalmdale.org, with “Small Business Town Hall” in the subject line.
“I hope to speak with you at the town hall and hear your ideas as we move forward together as a community,” Murphy said. “We are facing a new reality for sure, but this is an opportunity for us to collectively share our thoughts, talents, and resources to emerge from this with a fresh new perspective.”

Just open up businesses, its hurting the people of the AV more than anything. If you want to stay home and not go out cool have at it. Lowes and Home Depot are all open with hundreds of people in there!!
I’m not a business owner in Palmdale but I’m interested in listening in. Is that possible?
