Sister Cities Commission
The March 14 meeting has been canceled. The next regularly-scheduled meeting is Wednesday, April 11.
The Sister Cities Commission creates a greater understanding of and fosters a lasting friendship between the people of Naperville and its sister cities, Nitra, Slovakia and Pátzcuaro, México. The commission supports the goals of the Sister Cities Program including creating opportunities for cultural exploration; providing economic development and trade opportunities; opening a dialogue that addresses mutual issues; and developing partnerships through which we can creatively learn, work and solve problems together.
The City of Naperville currently shares Sister City designation with two international partners:
- Nitra, Slovakia - formalized on November 17, 1993
- Pátzcuaro, Mexico - formalized on November 13, 2010

Visit from Nitra
In February 2018, the Naperville Sister Cities Commission hosted Ivan Kosalko, a resident of Naperville's Sister City Nitra, Slovakia. Kosalko shared Nitra's history, economics, culture and relationship with Naperville to a variety of audiences.

Naperville's relationship with Nitra is featured in a March 2018 article about Sister City relationships. In our ever smaller international world we learn familiarity yields friendship and respect, both within and outside of our borders.
The Sister Cities Commission meets the second Wednesday of every month at 7 p.m. in the Mayor's Conference Room of the Naperville Municipal Center, 400 S. Eagle St, unless otherwise noted.
