You’re invited to attend Oct. 24 Neighborhood and Community Relations open house

You’re invited to stop by the Neighborhood and Community Relations (NCR) Department’s open house Thursday, Oct. 24 to see its new offices, meet the staff and learn more about the services it provides to City staff and the community.

The open house is set for 4 to 7 p.m. in room 425 Crown Roller Mill building, 105 5th Ave. S. The department, which assists neighborhoods and promotes resident participation in City decision-making, moved to the Crown Roller Mill building from the Tri-Tech Building in June.

Open house visitors can view interactive displays highlighting the work of neighborhoods, cultural communities and the City. Attendees can also talk with NCR staff, neighborhood and cultural community leaders, Neighborhood Revitalization Program Policy board members and Neighborhood and Community Engagement Commission members. Light refreshments will be served.

The Neighborhood and Community Relations Department was officially created in 2008. The department staff works to serve residents, support City departments, and promote strong relationships with neighborhoods and communities. Department staff work internally with City departments to help reduce barriers to civic participation, collaborate with and support neighborhood and community organizations, and foster access to the City for all communities.
