SAVE the Date
Great Neighborhoods Summit


Hello ONEin3ers what are you doing June 10, 2010 from 9:00 am to noon?

Whatever it is, it is probably half as cool as receiving a free breakfast (best meal of the day) kicking off the new Great Neighborhoods program.

What is the Great Neighborhoods program, you ask?  It is a program that will help residents create communities that are affordable, diverse, walkable, and have a high quality of life.

Another question…

We all want vibrant, healthy neighborhoods with a transportation system that gets us where we want to go, a choice of homes we can afford, services we need and recreation we want, and a place where our opinions are heard.  There are examples of these “great neighborhoods” in metropolitan Boston – but how can we create more of them?

Don’t know that answer? You probably should think about going to this fabulous event.

Not convinced yet?

At this spectacular event there will a panel of people who have helped communities create great neighborhoods across the country.  For the rest of the morning there will be a  discussion of ways that you (yes YOU!) can help create “great neighborhoods” and shape the Massachusetts Smart Growth Alliance’s innovative new Great Neighborhoods program.

LEARN how other cities and towns broadened opportunities for local residents.

LISTEN for lessons that metro Boston should adopt.

SHARE your ideas in discussions with our panelists and Smart Growth Alliance members.

Learn, listen and share?….pretty awesome!!!!!!!!

Complimentary breakfast (in case you didn’t believe me the first time that does mean FREE FOOD that you would typically eat in the morning hours) and sign-in starts at 8:30am
 Wentworth Institute of Technology – Watson Hall
550 Huntington Avenue, Boston, MA 02115

    Why would they do something like this on a Thursday morning? What about those of us who…I don’t know….have a job? I know there are few of us left, but there are *some*.
