Good morning! I’ve spent time updating City Council and the School Board on the problems we are having with our housing stock in the city and the impact poor quality housing is having on housing values city-wide and poverty rates.
I’ve also been out in the community making the presentation to a few other stakeholder groups in the City.
It’s time to roll it out to the public at large. I’ll be hosting two presentations in August. The Middletown City School District was very gracious in allowing us to utilize the school cafeterias at two locations to host these events.
The sole purpose of these presentations is to present to the public some of the issues facing our housing in Middletown and start to see the possible solutions available to address those problems.
The schools can probably handle around 100 people at each location easily. If we get too overwhelmed I’ll schedule additional presentations for the public.
Please consider joining me at the following days, times and locations:
Thursday, August 3rd, at 6:00 p.m. – Rosa Parks Elementary School cafeteria
Thursday, August 10th, at 6:00 p.m. – Amanda Elementary School cafeteria
I’ll ask more questions than we get answered at these events. Your input and questions help me to make better decisions as to how to fix some of our housing problems.
Plan to participate, but please be civil! See you there.
