Residents and friends of Reservoir Hill gather each month on the first Tuesday of the month to learn more about issues impacting the community and discuss solutions.
Over the past year, presenters have led discussions on steps to reduce lead paint poisoning, campaigns for affordable housing, and updates on key housing rehabs in the community. A Green Master Plan for the community has been discussed, the rehab of parks, and the partnership with Rebuilding Together to repair more than 40 homes, as well as activities by a variety of organizations in the area, such as the landscaping of 16 front lawns in the Lakeside Area, the annual garden tour, and a community garden. Elected officials representing Reservoir Hill have appeared to update residents on City and State actions. Numerous organizations around the city have appeared to discuss critical issues, including Citizens Planning & Housing Association, Coalition to End Childhood Lead Poisoning, and Healthy Neighborhoods Initiative. City personnel from the Department of Parks and Recreation, Department of Transportation, and the Mayor’s Office have participated in Reservoir Hill community meetings.
You get the idea. There’s lots of activity in Reservoir Hill. Come be part of the dialogue.
