A wonderful group of residents turned out on Tuesday evening for pizza and conversation about their community. The topics ranged from Business and Commerce to Community Gardens to how to get neighbors involved in their community and in the schools. Residents joined the topic that was most interesting to them and were free to move around from table to table as their interest and passion guided them. The result was a couple rounds of great conversation, a collection of notes and a lot of new connections between neighbors.
In the coming weeks we’ll share report backs from the different conversations here on the website and encourage more resident input. The purpose of these conversations is to have residents drive the conversation about what they’d like to see happen in their community and form action plans for moving us there. The next Community Conversation event will be June 25th and will build off of Tuesday’s meeting with more topics of discussion driven by residents and then a “pro-action cafe” that will focus on next steps to reaching the goals and vision the community wants. RSVP for the June Conversation today.
This event was made possible through a grant from the Bush Foundation. We would also like to thank the amazing staff at The Lowry Cafe for the delicious pizza and discounted space rental. Be sure to stop by for their first open evening this Friday for the Open Mic.
