We are going to attend "The Future of Neighborhoods Summit," sponsored by the Nashville Neighborhood Alliance, Inc. & the Neighborhoods Resource Center, on Thursday, August 31 at 6:00. The location is the Adventure Science Center and dinner will be served (RSVP required by today!). This is the first of three meetings designed to identify common concerns among the dozens of neighborhood groups represented and to strategize about the future. Other meetings will involve identifying those characteristics in candidates running for office next year that fit with the neighborhoods' strategy and developing a timetable for action.
This is a potentially significant event, and what hooked me was the plan "to work together to ensure that the next administration provides a high level of support and concern for neighborhoods."
