Mayor Brandi Harless and the City Commissioners are organizing Neighborhood Walks on select Monday evenings in 2019 beginning in May. There won’t be a walk May 27 due to the Memorial Day holiday.
Each walk begins at 6 p.m. at a designated meeting location. The first walk is set for Monday, May 13 for citizens who live in the Keiler Park and Carson Park neighborhoods. Residents should meet at the Keiler Park playground located at 2900 Broadway. Commissioner Brenda McElroy will be joining Mayor Harless on this walk.
Mayor Harless says, “Even in this age of incredible technology and social media platforms, nothing can replace face-to-face conversations. The goal of these walks is to meet residents in their neighborhoods where they can express their ideas about neighborhood beautification, safety, and improvements. I want these walks to generate a sense of neighborhood pride and launch opportunities to work together, neighbors with neighbors and neighbors with the government, to make enhancements.”
Upcoming walks include the Wallace Park neighborhood on May 20. Citizens should meet at Independence Park. On June 3, residents of the Cruse Avenue/Clayshire neighborhoods are invited to meet at the Salvation Army Community Center located at 2990 Trimble Street.
