About the venue
The Cedar City Council Chambers is a great place to showcase what the council is doing and how they are working to help our community. Normally, art displayed in the Council Chambers will highlight current happenings in Cedar City and council members' involvement in promoting and forwarding Cedar City. This display will be freshened frequently.
