Vibrant Batavia and NeighborWorks have scheduled five “Coffee Talks” throughout the City so that residents may open dialogue with City leadership about neighborhood issues and opportunities. The forum also sets the stage to introduce Leanna Di Risio as its Batavia dedicated Community Organizer.
Over the next few weeks, Di Risio will be knocking door to door inviting neighbors to attend the kick off Coffee Talk series, which will review the proposed neighborhood designations, encourage discussions about neighborhood concerns and start to list projects that will build confidence and pride in their community.
Candidates will be identified in each neighborhood to lead neighborhood functions; such as block parties, neighborhood clean up, holiday house tours, neighborhood garage sales, etc.
A short survey will also be distributed to attending residents with an incentive to comment. Chosen at random, a $25 gift certificate will be awarded at each of the slated Coffee Talk events. Coffee, hot chocolate and donuts will be provided along with kid friendly activities.
