NEIGHBORHOOD EXCHANGE OFFERING IDEAS FOR STRONGER NEIGHBORHOODS SEPT. 18
The City of Raleigh is registering residents for the Raleigh Neighborhood Exchange. The September 18 event will gather ideas and share information on how to make local neighborhoods better.
The annual exchange takes place from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the McKimmon Center, 1101 Gorman Street. The registration fee is $10, which includes a continental breakfast and lunch. Teenagers are admitted for free when accompanied by an adult.
This year’s theme is “Motivating Without Money.” Donna Warner, an instructor at the University of North Carolina School of Government, will lead the discussion on how neighbors can inspire themselves and others. Breakout sessions will explain how neighborhood groups can flourish, tips on urban farming, affordable housing suggestions and recommendations on how to improve relations between smalls businesses and neighborhoods. Several sessions will be offered in Spanish.
More than 20 exhibitors will offer information and giveaways during the event, which is sponsored by the City of Raleigh Community Services Department.
To register or for more information, call the Community Services Department at 996-6100 or email email@example.com. A brochure containing a registration form is available online at www.raleighnc.gov/communityservices. (Click on Raleigh Neighborhood Exchange.). Residents are encouraged to register by Sept. 8.
