Having released the report findings, we are challenging the community to respond in real and meaningful ways. In this spirit, the Heartside Neighborhood Collaboration Project is convening a community meeting around the issue of public intoxication.
Public intoxication is a complex issue and affects all stakeholder groups in Heartside-Downtown. Although public intoxication will never be completely eliminated, we would like to challenge the community by asking if there is a way to address the issue in a more collaborative and effective manner. During this meeting we will be addressing intoxication that causes a disruption in the day-in-day-out operations of our neighborhood.
The Public Intoxication Community Meeting will take place on Wednesday, December 4th from 8:00-9:30 am at Bethlehem Church, located at 250 Commerce Avenue. The process will involve bringing participants up to speed by giving a brief overview of the problem and what is currently being done to address this issue. There will then be a time of community brainstorming and dialogue to discuss possible opportunities. HNCP will then call a follow-up meeting three months following to review progress and action items from the initial meeting.
Please RSVP to Kate O’Keefe by November 25th via email or phone: firstname.lastname@example.org or 616.485.4557.
