Vibrant Batavia announces 'Bring Neighborhoods Together' events
Submitted by Howard B. Owens on March 3, 2014 - 5:18pm
Vibrant Batavia and City leaders have scheduled meetings to include four designated neighborhoods in the series “Bringing Neighborhoods Together.” The purpose of the series is to follow up from the Coffee Talk hosted last fall and allow more opportunity for questions and sharing concerns. Other topics will include crime prevention and brainstorming on street-wide events and beautification projects for the Spring 2014. Postcard invitations will be mailed to residents within the designated neighborhoods.
Bringing Neighborhoods Together will encourage discussions about neighborhood concerns and start to list projects that will build confidence and pride in their community. Candidates will be recruited in each neighborhood to lead future neighborhood functions, such as block parties, neighborhood clean-up, neighborhood garage sales, etc.
Refreshments and snacks will be served at each of these events hosted 6-8 p.m. at City Hall. Residents living in the designated neighborhood are invited to attend on the following dates:
Southside (South of Ellicott Street, east of Tonawanda Creek)
Date: March 19
West Wedge (Southwest of the Tonawanda Creek)
Date: March 26
West End (North of Tonawanda Creek, west of Oak Street)
Date: April 2
Central Park District (North of Main Street, east of Oak Street and west of Bank Street)
Date: April 9
Vibrant Batavia is a community network organized to celebrate the past, build on the present and to create a more vibrant future. The volunteers work side-by-side with the City of Batavia, NeighborWorks® Rochester and the business community to strategically improve the City's neighborhoods and to promote a livable community of choice.
