[FERNDALE] – “Around the Block: Strategies to Improve our Neighborhoods”, will be presented by Sullivan Renaissance seminar on Wednesday, December 12th at 6:00 pm at the CVI Building located at 165 Sullivan Avenue, Ferndale, NY. A panel of speakers – including representatives from the Sullivan County Land Bank and the Newburgh Land Bank -- will share information about what is happening to revitalize neighborhoods in the region and how residents can make a difference on their own block.
Also featured on the panel, Juan Journet, Sullivan
Renaissance Neighborhood Revitalization Coordinator, will introduce new
initiatives being developed to focus on beautification, block revitalization
and community engagement in culturally diverse neighborhoods.
“Neighborhoods decline when the people who live there lose
their connection and no longer feel part of their community” explained
Assistant Director and community planner Helen Budrock. “Next year, Sullivan Renaissance will be
broadening outreach into residential neighborhoods and facilitating projects
aimed at recapturing that sense of belonging and pride of place.”
