The postponement was announced Thursday morning in an email sent from David Cordero, the communications and marketing director for the city of St. George:

“Due to the potential for inclement weather and chilly temperatures, we are postponing today’s City of St. George Neighborhood Open House to a future date. When that date is settled, we will let you all know.”

Those interested in learning more about the city are invited to stop by these open houses, which are free and everyone is invited.

“Neighborhood Open Houses give the public a chance to mingle in a casual environment with elected officials and city staff to learn more about what we do,” said Mayor Michele Randall in a news release. “Experts from every city department are available to answer questions.”

Randall and members of the five-person City Council were expected to attend, as well as representatives from many city departments and divisions including public works, water, energy services, recreation, races, police, fire, golf, human resources, budget, planning and zoning, finance and legal.

Previous Neighborhood Open House locations have included SunRiver St. George, Historic Town Square, 2450 East Park, South Mountain Community Church, the Hela Seegmiller Historic Farm, Desert Color and the Thunder Junction All Abilities Park.

The final Open House of 2023 is set for April 27 at the new Broken Mesa Park (6045 S. Broken Rock Way) in the Desert Canyons community. It will also serve as the park’s grand opening.
