Neighborhood Heart and Soul

The City of Bloomington’s Housing and Neighborhood Development Department is hosting a workshop “Neighborhood Heart and Soul,” led by Phil Stafford, Center Director for the Institute's Center on Aging and Community, on Saturday, Oct. 24, 2015, from 9:00 a.m. to noon in the City Council Chambers, City Hall, 401 N. Morton St. Stafford is a cultural anthropologist and national leader in the age-friendly community movement.

This free workshop is for neighborhood residents who want to explore the treasures that drew residents to their neighborhoods and look into future neighborhood projects that will keep residents there. The workshop will include activities and methods that help residents establish what they want to preserve, value, add and develop to help shape each resident’s own neighborhood.

Registration is not required, but if you register by Monday, Oct. 12, a map of your neighborhood or area may be provided as a tool to work with as you explore the array of possibilities of projects in your neighborhood.

To register for this free workshop or to inquire if you live within the boundaries of a neighborhood association, please contact Vickie Provine, Program Manager at provinev@bloomington.in.gov or call 812.349.3505.
