Who is a Neighborhood Leader?
YOU are! Anyone who wants to learn about ways to make their neighborhood a better place to live is a neighborhood leader.
Pizza with Planners is BLDG Memphis’ ongoing series of free workshops for neighborhood leaders. During these workshops, participants gain a better understanding of how the system works, meet stakeholders and resource providers, and provides a platform to ask questions to better understand how the topics relate to their neighborhoods. Each workshop ties back to supporting BLDG Memphis’ five policy focus areas: transportation and safety, economic and community development, neighborhood and local government relations, reuse and revitalization and lastly affordable housing. Through these series of events, we hope to establish a growing culture of informed Memphians within community development and civic engagement. This workshop event is open to the general public and there is a strong preference for neighborhood leaders and those interested in becoming actively involved within their community.
