Each month, Western City magazine features a different
theme and articles related to that theme. Find information about
the monthly themes in the editorial calendar, which is developed
in advance for the calendar year.
In addition, the magazine has “standing” columns or features that
appear regularly. These include:
Executive Director’s Message
News from the Institute for Local Government
The magazine also publishes articles about cities that have won
a Helen Putnam Award for Excellence. This award program,
sponsored by Cal Cities, recognizes outstanding city projects in
a broad range of subject areas.
