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

Words from a “Transplant” and “Mo’ Money Mondays”

Hello Boston and faithful ONEin3 Boston blog readers, my name is Kendall and I am the new intern for ONEin3 Boston.  I am so excited to be working for a city I have grown to love in my three-year residency, and of course, to be working with local Boston celebrity Devin Cole.

As one of my many duties as an apprentice, I am going to attempt to spice the blog up a bit and hear more from the ONEin3 community.  I will be writing as a graduate student and North End resident about all areas including food, shopping, and things I have experienced as a “transplant” of the city (Devin’s words not mine).  Although I do not feel like a heart or a lung inserted into a new and needing body, I feel there are many things a person that did not grow up in Boston or “Bost…I mean Newton” can observe and report.
