For the 30th year, the City of Thousand Oaks will celebrate National Public Works Week to honor the tens of thousands of men and women who provide and maintain essential infrastructure and services. This year’s National Public Works Week theme, “Public Works Connects Us,” illustrates the pervasiveness of Public Works.
To celebrate Public Works Week the City will be hosting an open house event to educate the Conejo Valley and surrounding cities’ residents on how Public Works provides service to our community
. On May 23 and 24, 2017, school children and adults from the region are invited to the City’s annual Public Works Open House at the Municipal Service Center, located at 1993 Rancho Conejo Boulevard
, in Newbury Park.
The two-day event will include demonstrations on tree maintenance, graffiti removal, street repair, water conservation, recycling, bicycle safety, water operations, and wastewater collection. The tour features a ride through a car wash that uses recycled water on a Thousand Oaks Transit
bus which uses Compressed Natural Gas. Other highlights include demonstrations of the landscape aerial lift and kids can crawl through a stormdrain.
Individual and group tours may be scheduled between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. each day. Reservations are required for this event and are due by May 12, 2017. To reserve a tour, visit www.toaks.org/pww
or call (805) 449-2499
