Neighborhoods United for Change Initiative (#NU4C)
Sponsored by SLACO
Saturday, October 8
8:00 am – 1 pm
This program developed out of an idea to have residents from different neighborhoods get an introduction to where each other live, the challenges and opportunities each neighborhood experiences, and potential opportunities to learn from and help each other moving forward.
Forest Park Southeast has been paired up with the Jeff Vanderlou neighborhood. Jeff Vanderlou is located west of the future National Geospatial Agency Headquarters (NGA). The neighborhood gets its name from the combination of Jefferson Avenue and Vandeventer Avenue.
The FREE program will entail meeting at the SLACO office at 8:15am for a light breakfast, then attendees will board a bus to tour both neighborhoods and end with a lunch and facilitated discussion. The program will end no later than 1pm.
This program is made for people that are both new and extensive explorers of the city. This will be a great opportunity to focus and learn from another neighborhood that has both similarities and differences to Forest Park Southeast.
If you are interested in participating, contact tinA “Sweet-T” pihL, President of Forest Park Southeast Neighborhood Association at ForestParkSoutheast@gmail.com or (314) 896-3722.
