Friday is Redding’s 34th annual State of the City address and this year it’s for everybody. In the past the State of the City had been held at the Civic Auditorium as a lunch banquet with an admission charge. Friday’s event will be free of charge and outdoors at “Umbrella Alley”, in the newly renovated downtown at Market and Yuba Streets. The theme is “Better Together”. Redding Mayor Erin Resner and Chamber of Commerce President Jake Mangas will begin the presentation at 4 O’clock. An after party will be at the food truck park next to the Lorenz Hotel at 5PM.
