by Kevin Henkelman |

COQUITLAM, BC, September 21, 2015 – Coquitlam residents are invited to attend the City’s fifth annual Welcome to Coquitlam events to learn about the programs and services provided in the community.

Welcome to Coquitlam takes place on Wednesday, September 30 from 2:00 – 8:30 p.m. at City Hall (3000 Guildford Way).

City Council and staff will be available to provide information and answer questions on a wide variety of topics including, for example, how the City’s finances work, recycling and garbage services, parks and recreation activities and the Evergreen Line. Information from other organizations and community service providers will also be available. Translators will also be on hand for those requiring assistance.

An RCMP patrol car, a Coquitlam Fire / Rescue truck and City Public Works vehicles will be parked near Burlington Drive for tours and photos.

The annual event is geared to residents who are new to Coquitlam or Canada, but anyone who is interested in learning more about their City is encouraged to attend. In the four years the City has been hosting the event, approximately 2,000 people have come to Welcome to Coquitlam.

Attendees are encouraged to take transit, walk, cycle or carpool to the event, as parking is limited around City Hall.
