2021 Public Works Week – Stronger Together
May 16 – 22 is National Public Works Week! This annual week of recognition celebrates and educates the public on the role public works plays in creating a great place to live. Whether you’re driving on a road, playing in a park, enjoying clean water, or admiring the City’s landscape, the people in the Public Works Department had a hand in planning, building, managing, and operating these necessities that improve our everyday quality of life.
The 2021 “Stronger Together” theme highlights the importance of citizens and public works professionals working together to achieve the largest impact on the community, overcome obstacles, and realize goals once thought unattainable.
For health and safety reasons surrounding the ongoing pandemic, the City of Coppell’s Public Works Department will be keeping the event low key this year. The City Council approved a Proclamation designating May 16 -22, 2021 as National Public Works Week at the April 27 Council meeting and staff will celebrate with a luncheon during the week. While there will not be any planned public events, residents are invited to commemorate the week by participating in an activity that improves the community’s environment such as picking up litter or completing a beautification project.
