Neighborhoods 2020 Roadmap

Document open for public comment through April 30

Neighborhoods 2020 is a planning process for the funding and implementation of neighborhood-centric programming. You have the chance to submit your opinions and help shape the decisions about neighborhood funding, programs and oversight. The 2020 Roadmap presents three proposals to consider, and hopes further ideas may bring forth a solution that best supports the grassroots organizational success our City has experienced, while expanding opportunities for a changing society.
