Flint Mayor Dayne Walling is hosting two neighborhood action sessions (today) Monday, December 7, 2009.
The first session was held at Noon today at the Riverfront Residence Hall in downtown Flint. We had about 30 students and college staff who came out to be a part of helping move our great city of Flint forward in a positive direction.
This group identified a number of assets in the community and lots of opportunity as well. The Flint river was identified as both an asset and an opportunity.
This group really had some great ideas about making downtown Flint more appealing to college students. They talked about having more bike and walking trails; a bowling alley; and a movie theatre. Most in the group said they were proud of the city's educational opportunities and the city's student population. It was a small but effective group who showed up and we are grateful for their input.
+++++++++++++++++++++++Neighborhood Action in the 3rd Ward
Tonight at 5:30 Mayor Walling and members of his administration will be in the 3rd ward at Berston Field House for the 8th Neighborhood Action Session. Just one more to go for the first phase. More than 500 residents have come out to share in our discussions about guiding city resources and moving this community forward. The last neighborhood action session for the the year will be in Ward 6 on December 16, 209 at 5:30 at McLaren Regional Medical Center.
