The Colman Neighbors Association (CNA) is hosting a neighborhood conference on Saturday, February 28th, from 10 a.m – 2 p.m., at the African American Museum. The CNA hopes the conference will be a catalyst for cross-neighborhood projects. The conference is open to any neighbors in the area, but because it is a catered event, RSVP’s are mandatory. RSVP’s can be made to [email protected].
A panel made up of:
- Cecelia Alvarez, local Chicana artist and educator.
- Eudora Carter, Health Educator, Project Coordinator for the Center for MultiCultural Health; Central Area Development Association board member.
- Sally Clark, Seattle City Council, Chair of the Planning, Land Use and Neighborhoods committee
- Darlene Flynn, former School Board member and Neighborhood District Coordinator; currently Seattle Office of Civil RightsStrategic Manager
- Lt. John Hayes, Director of Community Outreach, SPD
will explore the question: “What makes a great neighborhood,” followed by a Q&A.
A working lunch will follow during which participants will brainstorm cross-neighborhood projects.
Child care will be provided, but arrangements must be made in advance with Lisa Price at [email protected]. Lisa has graciously offered her home, about a block from the museum, and is coordinating with a child care provider.
This conference has been made possible thanks to a generous Neighbor-to-Neighbor grant from the Seattle Foundation.
