FLINT MAYOR DAYNE WALLING TO BEGIN A SERIES OF NEIGHBORHOOD MEETINGS
The Mayor will begin hosting a series of Neighborhood Action Sessions in each of the city's 9 Wards. The first session is scheduled for October 1, 2009 in Ward 1 at the Hasselbring Center.

The Neighborhood Action process is designed to allow residents the opportunity to help guide the deployment of limited city resources in ways that best meet their needs and desires. In addition, residents will, by ward, help identify ways to build upon our community assets while developing and implementing solutions to address our challenges. Our goal is to work together with citizens to create a prosperous and vibrant community. It’s all a part of the Mayor’s vision to create a 21st century city that includes New Jobs, Safe Neighborhoods, and Great Schools.
