Greater Wards Corner Partnership Meeting
Thursday, September 24th, 2009 7:00 p.m.
Workforce Development Center (Next to Kroger)
201 E. Little Creek Road
We encourage members from all the Civic Leagues in the Greater Wards Corner Partnership Area to join us for our meeting this Thursday. We will be discussing the importance of working together to get the change we all need and want to see in our area. Since 1995 we have all sat and watch while other areas of the city have taken our tax dollars and been redeveloped. We have listened to the promises and watched as our area fallen prey to more and more blight. The time for action is now, and only working together can we make it happen. There is no more Wards Corner Comprehensive Plan we need a new one. Come and let’s discuss it your neighbors, what do we want to see here in our area. The business district can’t change without the redevelopment of the ghetto first and we can make that happen together.
We hope enough people in this area are ready to get involved to bring this change about. The time is right, the time is now.
Hope to see you Thursday night at 7:00 p.m. in Room 204 at the Workforce Development Center.
