Heartside Public Intoxication Community Meeting

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: hncp01@gmail.com or 616.485.4557.
