Neighborhood Summit (Saturday, December 2, 2017)

This day-long event promotes meaningful partnership between residents and local government, partnerships that when supported have the power to weaken entrenched cynicism and disengagement, providing a different paradigm for the public working with government. The Summit also serves as the  year-end event, celebrating the work and initiatives of the Neighborhood Engagement Office and our partners.  This year’s theme Celebrating 300 years of Resilient Neighborhoods: Laying a Strong Foundation for the Future is centered on celebrating the impact and investment that neighborhood leaders have contributed to build a more resilient city. As we approach the City’s 300 anniversary, we want to acknowledge how far our neighborhoods have come and focus strengthening resident’s capacity to build a stronger more resilient city.

Please REGISTER TODAY if you have not done so yet.

See you all then!!!

Sincerely,

Lisbeth
