SCI Eastern North Implementation Meetings are Underway!

October 7, 2011

Continuing the momentum from SCI-Eastern North’s Rollout in June, this Tuesday evening marked the beginning of implementation committee meetings. Focusing on income and wealth, healthy lifestyles, and children, youth and education, community organizations, stakeholders, and residents came together to discuss community projects to implement in the near future. The healthy lifestyles committee discussed nutrition workshops and drug and alcohol prevention classes. Several projects are underway for youth in the area, including the Digital Connectors program, where youth receive technology training and leadership skills. The income and wealth group focused on assessing quality of life plan goals and assessing current programs meeting those goals.  Additionally, they discussed the implementation of possible future projects including the eastern North Financial Opportunity Center.

 This is just the beginning of the implementation process, so there are several more meetings to join in and talk about what you want to do in the community. The leadership committee and Income and Wealth committee will be meeting next on October 18.  Arts and culture, physical environment, and economic development are meeting on November 1.  All committees will be meeting at the Welsh School (2331 North 4th Street) from 5-7pm.
