Cupertino residents will have double the opportunities to hear Mayor Steven Scharf give the State of the City Address on Jan. 30.

Each year, the sitting mayor gives an update on all things Cupertino. According to the City, the speech usually focuses on the state of the City’s finances, development, capital projects, as well as highlights of the past year’s accomplishments and a look to the year ahead.

In most previous years, the City of Cupertino-led event was held once during an afternoon on a Wednesday.

The mayor will first speak first during a lunchtime event at the Quinlan Community Center, located at 10185 N. Stelling Road. It will be held at 11:30 a.m. during a meeting co-hosted by the Rotary Club of Cupertino and Cupertino Chamber of Commerce. It will run until about 1:30 p.m.

The afternoon event is free and open to the public, however there is limited seating. To secure a seat, resident can purchase lunch tickets.

A second speech will be given by Scharf that same evening at 6:30 p.m. This event is also free for the public to attend. It will be from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., also at the Quinlan Center. Rather than a paid meal, light appetizers will be available.
