East Ward Council Member Derwin L. Montgomery is inviting residents of the Dreamland Park neighborhood to assist him in a neighborhood assessment that will identify needs and opportunities in their neighborhood.
Interested residents should attend a pre-assessment meeting at 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 8, at Dreamland Park Baptist Church, 2340 Dunbar Drive. The meeting will brief residents on how to conduct the assessment.
The assessment will be held Saturday, Sept. 10, from 8 a.m. to noon. Assessors will fan out through the neighborhood and note such deficiencies as broken sidewalks and illegal dumps. Assessors will also look for opportunities to improve the neighborhood with such features as community gardens or pocket parks.
For more information, call Tabetha Bailey at 462-2341.
