There will be a Community Vision Meeting on Thursday, June 21 at East Liberty Presbyterian Church. From 5 to 6 p.m. will be a “Green Fair” of environmentally-aware organizations, intended to set the stage for conversations about sustainability and community health. The meeting and discussion will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Social Hall. It will review the progress that has been made, continue discussions that update the 1999 Community Plan, and invite stakeholders to think big about neighborhood issues and possible solutions. Childcare will be provided to those who make reservations with Emily at 412.361.8061. Refreshments will be provided, but those attending are welcome to bring cookies.

It is important that residents, business owners and anyone affiliated with East Liberty attend this meeting and share their voice.  Please go to our Community Vision Info page for more details and a discussion forum.

    Very informative meeting. I think that the ELDI should do a better job at disseminating information to the public. I would suggest if it has not yet been down, to begin writing a monthly newspaper, because there are many people who are not technologically savvy and those who simply do not have computer/internet access. This would help to mitigate the general ambivalence that circulates among residents of East Liberty.

    I think it would be great for a concerned resident to meet with ELDI monthly to discuss current and upcoming issues and create a one-page newsletter that perhaps ELDI can help distribute. It’s important to keep ELDI connected to the community. This would be a great way to do that.
