FutureHeights to host two public meetings: July 16 and 18
On Tuesday, July 16, 7 p.m., a FutureHeights-sponsored panel will discuss neighborhood revitalization through beautification at The BottleHouse Brewery & Meadery, 2050 Lee Road. (The event, which was originally slated for June, was rescheduled due to the city's scheduling of a Top of the Hill public meeting for the same evening.)
Speakers, including Tom Gibson, Phyliss Thomas, George Fleming and Jan Kious, will discuss the macro-level social implications that gardening, planting flowers, and beautification can have on a neighborhood, or, in some cases, an entire community.
Then, on Thursday, July 18, FutureHeights will host the last in a series of community meetings to share plans for, and gather input about, the Noble Road commercial corridor. (The meeting was re-scheduled from its original June date due to an unforeseen scheduling conflict.)
At the meeting, which will take place at 7 p.m. at Central Bible Baptist Church, 2285 Noble Road, project consultant Camiros LTD will present the team's final iteration of research and ideas, encompassing feedback gathered from the community over the past several months. The venue is handicapped accessible, and free childcare is available with a reservation.
