Celebrating Neighborhoods conference

From the Mayor's Office of Neighborhoods:

Mayor Bill Purcell and the Mayor's Office of Neighborhoods will host the 6th Annual Celebrating Neighborhoods conference at the Main Branch of the Nashville Public Library on Saturday, October 14, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

This year's conference will focus on building and maintaining strong neighborhoods through education and skill development for neighborhood leaders. Conference attendees will explore ways to help Metro identify, address and prevent problems in neighborhoods. They will also have the opportunity to participate in sessions on crime prevention and land use issues such as zoning and planning.

"For seven years, we have been working hard to improve the quality of life in neighborhoods across our city," said Purcell. "This conference will again allow us a chance to partner citizens and neighborhood organizations with Metro government to strengthen our community."

Conference speakers include representatives from the Metro Codes, Health, Public Works, Water and Police departments. This year's keynote luncheon speaker will be Mayor Bill Purcell. The Mayor's Office of Neighborhoods will also announce the Neighbor of the Year and Vanguard awards at the conference.

The conference is free and open to the public, however, seating is limited, so registration is recommended. Free parking will be available to conference participants with validated tickets at the Church Street Parking Garage.

To participate, contact the Mayor's Office of Neighborhoods at (615) 862-5979 or visit the conference Web site to register.
