RENAISSANCE HITS THE BLOCK

Seminar to Address Neighborhood Revitalization

December 3, 2018

[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.”  

Municipal planning and zoning Board members will receive a certificate of completion for continuing education credit, but everyone is welcome.   Space for the seminar is limited and pre-registration is requested. To register visit: www.SullivanRenaissance.org/seminar or call the Sullivan Renaissance office at 845-295-2445.   Light refreshments will be provided. 

Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation.  Call 845-295-2445 or visit SullivanRenaissance.org for more information.
