The meeting will take place at the Eisemann Center for Performing Arts and Corporate Presentations, located at 2351 Performance Dr, Richardson, TX 75082.

Council meetings are available to view online and on-demand at the City’s website at www.cor.net/citv. Live viewing on the City’s cable access channels for Spectrum and U-Verse have been unavailable since Aug. 22, 2022 due to damage sustained after a fire damaged City Hall. Work to restore cable coverage is underway and expected to resume once City Hall offices are relocated into a new temporary facility.
