You are invited to participate in the second of several Community Meetings to discuss the Northeast Area Master Plan. We had a great turn-out at Community Meeting 1 in October, where residents and stakeholders of hte Northeast Area learned more about the planning process, discussed community assets and challenges, and provided their ideas for Early Action Projects. At this second community meeting, we will discuss initial findings and build on what we’ve heard, craft a vision for the Northeast Area, and get the ball rolling on Early Action Project ideas. Your ideas and feedback are important to the success of the Plan! Families with children are welcome. Identical afternoon and evening sessions will be held in order to maximize participation and a Spanish translator will be present. Questions? Call 913-573-5759 or email zflanders@wycokck.org.
