Livermore Downtown Inc. is hosting a special online event Monday evening bringing community stakeholders together to discuss plans for reopening Livermore.
The "Back to Business Streaming Watch Party," which is set to begin at 6 p.m. on Memorial Day, broadcasting via Facebook Live, will feature city leaders and local business representatives -- plus some musical entertainment.
"No city is immune to the virus itself, but we as a conscientious community have an opportunity to fight the secondary infections of community division and economic despair without compromising health and safety," Livermore Downtown Inc. officials said. "We will move forward when the data supports our ability to do so."
"While we await the green light from the experts, Livermore Downtown Inc, small business owners, and community leaders, with the support of the city of Livermore, have come together to collaborate on reopening safely for all of our community members," they added.
Monday's session will be hosted by Mayor John Marchand and feature commentary from Livermore business and community groups such as Fortune Emporium, Omni Fight Club, Cut to the Chase Barber Shop, All About Me Kids Salon, First Street Alehouse, The Vault, Uncle Yu's, Hops & Sessions, Livermore Pride and El Charro, organizers said.
Musical performances will also be given by local artists including Meredith McHenry, The Midnights and Crawdad Republic.
"You will hear directly from city officials, business owners, and community leaders on what we are doing to ensure we can move forward into stage two, three and beyond with safety at the top of mind," Livermore Downtown Inc. officials said. "We are resilient. We are innovative. We are ready. Livermore strong, we will get through this together."
