Neighborhoods are the building blocks of our communities.  They shape our lives in powerful ways – where we spend our money, how we travel through the city, with whom we spend our time.

For anyone already involved in or new persons interested in Indianapolis‘ community development, I strongly encourage you to attend the first annual Neighbor Power.

neighbor powerThis free event features workshops and presentations on the issues that are most important to our neighborhoods.  I plan to attend “Abandoned, not forgotten” and “Peaceful Streets.”  From the information gained, I am looking forward to implementing some ideas into my near eastside neighborhood.

Neighbor Power is provided by Greater Indy Neighborhoods.  The event is this Saturday, October 17 from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. – hosted at the University of Indianapolis.  Please check out:  further details, registration, and workshop listings.  Hopefully, I will see you there!
