NEW: Campus Neighborhood Association
Student leaders and residents of campus-area neighborhoods are coming together to create a neighborhood association catered directly to students and residents of the area--not just property owners. In response to the 126 Langdon development process, which showed a glaring lack of adequate and equitable student input, we're creating a forum to discuss and amplify disenfranchised student voices.
Our new Campus Neighborhood Association's (CNA) intent is to foster civic engagement and advocacy for the neighborhood at large. It is also a hope that the Neighborhood Association can do the following: make recommendations in discussions related to community development, public space use, and city-county administration; address issues of equity, sustainability, and public safety by lobbying elected officials; host community-building events and create neighborhood newsletters; educate residents about city zoning, ordinances, and the neighborhood's rich history and culture; create a public forum for residents to discuss and amplify grievances; and, empower residents to be civically engaged.
A group is coming together THIS THURSDAY (June 12th) at 6:30 PM via google hangouts to discuss bylaws and potential plans for a Campus Neighborhood Association. If you're a student or resident of the campus-area (including dorms) we'd love to have you there to help us set up a structure and plan for our first Neighborhood Association meeting.
