I. SUMMARY

The 55th anniversary of the founding of the City of Carson will occur on February 20, 2023. This item introduces a discussion for the City Council to consider setting forth a planning process for activities related to the 55th anniversary.
The City has historically celebrated its anniversary of incorporation every five years with some number of events. There is typically a planning committee for these events consisting of volunteers and City staff.
In its preparations for the City of Carson 50th anniversary, the City Council allocated funding in the amount of $49,000 to cover estimated expenses and the City was able to co-brand many of its existing budgeted special events as part of the 50th anniversary celebration. Volunteers helped plan for the celebration by participating on several subcommittees that focused on various aspects of the events and programs.
Additionally, fundraisers were held to supplement the $49,000 allocation. To promote and help fundraise for the 50th anniversary, the City conducted several activities including but not limited to developing a Rose Parade float, a gala ball event, a golf tournament, a commemorative quilt, a mural, and a cookbook. Also, the City conducted an artwork contest among students in Carson schools and developed a street pole banner sponsorship program. Additional details on the 50th anniversary celebration are included in the staff report that is included as Exhibit No. 1.
This item requests the City Council discuss the 55th anniversary of the City and provide direction to staff on a potential planning process for related activities.
