Carbondale’s Housing and Neighborhood Action Group is gearing up for the 7th annual Neighborhood Alliance Meeting, to be held Saturday morning, January 22, 2011, at the First United Methodist Church in Carbondale. The meeting gathers together neighbors and community groups to report from a neighborhood perspective and to learn about current efforts to strengthen neighborhoods. The Action Group will finalize plans at their next meeting, on Wednesday, January 5 at 5 pm in City Hall. All meetings are open to the public.
Group member Mary O’Hara says, "Participants consistently report that the highlight for them is the opportunity to hear about community groups and projects from the people who organize them. There are so many good things going on in Carbondale, from FoodWorks to the Splash Park at Attucks Park, this is a chance to celebrate the people who work to build our community."
