Speaker Series

Subscribe to email updates

As part of its General Plan Update (GPU), the City of Culver City is hosting a Speaker Series to inform, educate, and discuss issues that are important to everyone who lives, works, plays, and learns in Culver City. With the community’s help, the project team will create an updated General Plan that maintains Culver City’s uniqueness while creating opportunities for improving our economic growth, transportation, housing, climate change resilience, and more. We’ve established the Speaker Series to inspire you to help shape the future of Culver City.

You can find details below about each event as they become available, including links to RSVP to upcoming events. Following each event, staff will post an event summary and a link to a video of the event. Please contact Advance Planning staff at advance.planning@culvercity.org or call (310) 253-5740 with any questions.

Upcoming Events

We will be looking to future dates to reschedule later in the year.

As a precautionary measure, the City Manager directed staff to cancel certain public meetings and events. Currently, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommend physical distancing when there is significant community transmission of the novel coronavirus.  

The City will continue to work closely with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health to protect the health and safety of our Culver City residents, visitors and staff. Learn more about the Coronavirus on the City of Culver City’s page with updates on the coronavirus and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health’s website on the coronavirus.

We will provide information on future events as it becomes available.
