Northeast Neighborhood Action Meeting
Following the Neighbor to Neighbor Forum, residents told us they wanted more opportunities to meet with each other to address the challenges in their areas of the City. This is an opportunity for all neighbors of the Northeast to gather! We will spend a brief amount of the meeting recapping the January Neighbor to Neighbor Forum that sparked the idea for these action meetings. We will then spend the rest of the meeting brainstorming and planning creative ways to address challenges in your neighborhood.
Come with your ideas & dreams for your community. We are looking to work together to create action steps and solutions to address our challenges.
Children are welcome. Dinner & drinks provided.
