It may be short notice, and I apologize – but the next edition of Community Conversations is coming to Land Park/Curtis Park on July 13. Plus it’s in Oak Park, Midtown, and other parts of Sacramento.
The second in a series of community dialogues, Community Conversations is sponsored by the Sacramento Region Community Foundation, Capital Public Radio, and the Sacramento Bee. The series, which deals with different topics of current public importance, aims to allow neighbors to listen to each other and learn from each other, leading to better informed, more engaged citizens.
The next conversation will be taking place at various locations across Sacramento (one in each City Council district), on Tuesday, July 13 at 7:00 p.m. Tuesday night’s topic is: “Budget cuts: What are we willing to do without, and what are we willing to do about the rest?”
Since the Poverty Ridge/Newton Booth/Alhambra Triangle neighborhoods are basically all in City Council District 4 (which includes Land Park and Curtis Park), the conversation for this district is being held at Espresso Metro, 2104 11th Avenue. There are also conversations being held at Old Soul Co. on 3434 Broadway in Oak Park (Council District 5); and at Butch and Nellie’s at 1827 I Street in Midtown (Council District 3).
One more thing: In order to keep the discussion civil, participants are asked to read the following Guidelines for Civil Discourse, and to please abide by them during the conversation.
