You’ve got an idea for a neighborhood project. Something that’s going to engage the community, liven things up, maybe make your block feel a little more like home.
Easier said than done, right? These kinds of projects can be hard to get started and even harder to keep up.
On March 22, Philadelphia PAC 5th Square and national urbanism network Urban Consulate are teaming up to bring you “A Tactical Urbanism Guide: Starting scaling and growing small neighborhood projects.”
It’s gonna be great. Here’s why:
First, the thing is at Johnny Brenda’s on Frankford and Girard. It’s being hosted by the ever-energized Akeem Dixon, New Kensington CDC’s economic development chief.
Plus, guest speakers include local all-stars such as Germantown United CDC’s Emaleigh Doley, South of South Neighborhood Association’s Lauren Vidas and Bartram Garden’s Justin DiBerardinis.
See you there.-30-
