Our urban neighborhoods provide the foundation of our personal and work based communities. Lively, interactive neighborhoods foster healthy lives and innovative new businesses.

Our April Civic Innovation Conversation will focus on what new approaches can be taken to create a richer community experience in our neighborhoods.  We will have six speakers provide five-minute perspectives on how to augment neighborhood activities, spaces and lives.  We will then follow with a breakout sessions where small groups can brainstorm on initiatives that they would like to see pursued, and perhaps lead the efforts.
