CML will once again host Colorado Cities & Towns Week, Sept. 10-16, 2018, to unite the municipal family. Get an overview on participation.
To assist in your planning, CML has released a toolkit, providing suggestions, ideas and examples of participation of cities in towns in previous years.
CML produced several video PSAs for municipalities to use during the week or throughout the year (they are not specific Colorado Cities & Towns Week). If you would like to run them on your government access channel, embed in your website, or link to from social media, contact Traci Stoffel. Topics include: Life is Better, Travel, Home, Safety, Lifestyle, Vibrancy, and Community.
There are also 30-second radio spots on how cities and towns keep their communities safe, moving, and thriving. (Again, these are not specific to Colorado Cities & Towns Week and may be used at any time.)
Colorado Cities & Towns Week is also a great time to highlight CML's annual Municipal Hero Award winners (or your own community heroes)!
Give away free CML-provided items! Contact CML Membership Services Manager Lisa White with how many of which items you would like - up to 100 of the clappers and bandages, and up to 50 of the coloring books and crayons. Free while supplies last, these will be sent beginning in July.
Dispensers containing bandages with the message “We’ve got you covered! Colorado Cities & Towns” are perfect for residents to carry in a purse or backpack.
Coloring/activity books and crayons.
Fun clappers with the message “You deserve a round of applause!”
