The current buzz among Salemtown Neighbors is that some in the other neighborhood association (T.R.U.E.) are talking about the two groups starting to communicate with one another. In fact, talking between members of the two groups started immediately after the August 9 meeting with MDHA. Also, one of the Salemtown Neighbors officers attended a T.R.U.E. meeting last week and was left with the impression that leaders there are interested in collaboration between the two groups.
There is reason for guarded optimism. There are still important philosophical differences between the two groups, but Salemtown Neighbors has always emphasized the need for collaboration, so maybe the reported responsiveness on the part of T.R.U.E. represents a significant step forward.
