City of Vista Council Meetings

Regular Consolidated Meetings are held on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at 5:30 p.m.  Beginning in the 2019, the City will begin broadcasting the live webcast of the City Council meetings. These Council Meeting webcasts will create a more direct link between Vista’s elected representatives and the public in real time during the meetings. As a result, there will no longer be a delayed broadcast on the cable channels.  

To view a live City Council meeting in 2019, the public should use this link to view the meetings. The agenda and past Council meeting minutes can still be downloaded on the same webpage.

Online video broadcasts of Regular Meetings are live. Meetings are held in the Civic Center Council Chambers located on the second floor of the Civic Center, 200 Civic Center Drive, Vista, CA 92084.

City Council Workshop Meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month at 2:00 p.m. Workshop and Special Meetings are not televised.

West Side Story opens – August 14 – 31, 2019

August 14 – 18 at 8:00 pm

Wednesday through Sunday night
August 21 – 25 at 8:00 pm
Wednesday through Sunday night
August 28 – 31 at 8:00 pm
Wednesday through Saturday night

From the first notes to the final breath, West Side Story is one of the most memorable musicals and greatest love stories of all time. Arthur Laurents’ book remains as powerful, poignant and timely as ever. The score by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim is widely regarded as one of the best ever written. The world’s greatest love story takes to the streets in this landmark Broadway musical that is one of the theatre’s finest accomplishments. Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is transported to New York City as two young, idealistic lovers find themselves caught between warring street gangs, the “American” Jets and the Puerto Rican Sharks. Their struggle to survive in a world of hate, violence and prejudice is one of the most innovative, heart-wrenching and relevant musical dramas of our time.

Parents Night Out — Parents, take the night off! Drop the kids off at the City of Vista’s Jim Porter Recreation Center for four hours of nonstop fun! We’ll keep the kids busy from start to finish with lots of games and activities such as Capture the Flag and Car Lot in the gym and then arts and crafts and board games in the Auditorium or Preschool Classroom. The activities are age appropriate.

The kids will have a fun time and parents can take a break to enjoy dinner and a movie or just quiet time at home. It’s a great opportunity and an even better price!  Information 760.643.5275 or email.

Please Note: We encourage parents to feed their children before dropping them off.  No food is provided by staff. Children can bring a snack and water.
