Suisun City Grand Openings

Suisun City welcomed two new businesses into town over the weekend, with grand opening celebrations at Stiiizy and Beyond Tea. Stiiizy, located at 521 Railroad Avenue, is the first cannabis dispensary in Suisun City and started the weekend off with a ribbon cutting by Mayor Lori Wilson in front of a line of people waiting to get in when the doors opened at 9 am on Saturday morning. One couple actually arrived at 3 am and drove from Antioch to be first in line.

The second grand opening event took place at Beyond Tea in the Marina Shopping Center on Sunday afternoon. Mayor Wilson once again had the honor of greeting customers and cutting the ribbon. Beyond Tea offers milk tea and is planning a variety of complementary food and beverage items in the future.

The recently completed Holiday Inn Express in downtown Suisun City had a long awaited grand opening event the previous weekend with a standing room only crowd on hand to congratulate developer Camran Nojoomi on the successful completion and opening of the newest hotel in Solano County.

In addition to Mayor Wilson, other Council members, past and present Planning Commissioners, city staff, Fairfield-Suisun Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors, and other dignitaries attended these events.

Mayor Lori Wilson stated, “This is an exciting time to be Mayor of Suisun City. Counting the Holiday Inn Express that officially opened a week ago, this is the third grand opening event in Suisun City in the last ten days. I love the passion and energy and excitement of these grand opening events and I hope we can continue to push our city forward economically by welcoming new businesses such as these to Suisun City.

Suisun City Monthly Survey

Last month began a monthly community engagement mini-survey asking about street sweeping schedules. Based on the results of that survey it was evident that residents are not well informed about the street sweeping schedule in their area, so City staff will be looking at ways to better inform our residents so that we can have cleaner overall streets.

This month’s survey will be about art in public places. For the next few weeks we will be asking residents to complete a very short survey regarding their thoughts on public art. Future mini-surveys will center around other quality of life issues where the Suisun City Council may be able to make better informed, data-driven decisions to improve the quality of life in Suisun City.

Mayor Lori Wilson stated, “As a strong believer in the value of art in public spaces, I am very excited about this particular survey! I hope everyone takes about 2 minutes out of their schedule to respond and help build a better community. The topic of a public art fee will be coming to Council soon and this will help us gauge the community’s interest.”
